More Cake Balls! Yummmm!!

Over the holidays I made tons of cake balls, I used chocolate cake & lemon cake. This time I wanted to try something new, so I used a vanilla cake mix & it was wonderful. When I made the cake I added a few pinches (that's how I measure) of cinnamon & vanilla extract. I always bake the cake the night before, let it cool, cut in in half, and seal it in a Ziploc bag. This makes the cake really soft & easy to work with.

When it came time to prepare I took half the cake, crumbled it in a bowl, and added the frosting. I use a butter cream frosting & this time I mixed it with Amaretto. When adding the frosting, I add a little bit at a time until I'm happy with the consistency.

After that I ball up the cake and put them in the freezer for 2-3 hours. Then it's time for dipping and decorating.

Pretty Easter cups I got from Michaels

Into the freezer they go. In a few days I plan on making a batch with chocolate cake & white chocolate, once those are done, it's off to Kansas they go.

Those look much too good for pictures, good thing I didn't give up sweets for Lent.

Yum - I am going to have to come back to these for Easter treats. I wonder if they would work with a white chocolate frosting. May have to leave out the Amaretto for the kids?!!

Marilyn,

You can use just about any flavor combo that you prefer. They're almost always a success.

If you made those on friday....How come we didn't see any being passed around on Sunday? Or is Paul substituting cake balls for cheese? LOL
