I started making a couple different kinds of cake balls and cake pops, including some for Rachel's birthday party. I've made the cake from scratch, I've made the cake part from boxed mixes. Both result in delicious, moist cake with a crunchy candy coating on the outside. When I started this blog, I decided that I would definitely make the Halloween cake balls I had been reading about for months now. It helped that I saw this on newsstands for inspiration:
- Bake a cake (9" x 13")
- Crumble a cake
- Add frosting, mush together
- Roll into balls
- Dip the balls into hot melted candy chocolate and let harden
Here we go!
- 1 cup canned pumpkin
|Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients.|
|Beat with wire whisk, hand mixer or stand mixer.|
|Bake and cool.|
STEP TWO: Cut off any hard edges and dispose how you see fit. Crumble the cake. If you really want to, make it even more fine by running through a food processor.
STEP THREE: Add almost an entire tub of cream cheese frosting to your crumbles and mush together. I've done this two ways: by hand and with my mixer. Both work well, but the mixer is easier and cleaner.
|It doesn't look very appetizing at this point, I know!|
STEP FOUR: Roll into balls onto a cookie sheet covered with waxed paper. Then cover with plastic wrap and tin foil and pop into the freezer until you are ready to decorate. Note: Wash your hands frequently so that rolling goes smoothly. Cake will accumulate on your palms.
