Cake Balls

So... I'm on twitter and follow @SparklingReview and that girl is ALWAYS posting something tasty looking that she's made for her ETSY store ( you really should check it out - ). One day she mentioned cakeballs and I said "Cake is square!" I'll stick to that... but... they looked so good I had to try it.

My version is no where near as pretty as hers... but they taste pretty darn good.

Step One - Bake a cake and let it cook (I made a red velvet one)

Step Two - Crumble up the cake in a big bowl.

Step Three - Get frosting (canned or homemade).
I made a simple cream-cheese frosting
with equal parts butter and cream-cheese,
a dash of vanilla, and powdered sugar
until you like the thickness.

Step Four - Mix the frosting into the crumbled cake
until it is moist enough to form balls.

Step Five - Roll the mixture into balls.
I didn't want red stained hands so I used
the two spoon method. Took a bit longer
but works just as well.

Step Six - Freeze the Balls (for an hour or so)

Step Seven - Melt down some chocolate.
I made Chocolate covered Cakeballs
using both white and milk chocolate.

Step Eight - Take an ice cold cakeball and cover it in
the chocolate. Then sprinkle a little bit of cake
crumbles on top or use colored sugar or some
other yummy topping.

Step Nine - Into the fridge or freezer to harden the chocolate.

Step Ten - EAT THEM!!
