Last night I made 84 cake balls. In lieu of the traditional wedding cake, we have decided to make cake pops, Lord have mercy. They are so darn cute, though, and will make for a festive display. Last night was strawberry night. I already have 120 chocolate cake balls in the freezer. And we haven’t even started with the vanilla yet. Here’s the scoop on cake balls:
The night before I made 3 cakes.
I started by cutting the cake into 8 chunks.
Then I took a knife and scraped off the brown outer covering. You can’t have brown crumbs in pink cake balls. That would just be wrong.
Next, I rubbed the chunk of cake in my hands over a bowl and let the crumbs fall where they may.
How do the crumbs hold together, you ask? Frosting, of course! I dropped a dollop in the crumbs and worked it in. Oh, and see that cake pan with all those delicious, moist, brown bits of goodness? I didn’t eat all of it…
The last step was to roll the delectable concoction into balls and put them into the freezer. When they are frozen, I will put them into a sealed plastic container where they will wait for their crowning glory: a dip into more candy coating sweetness. The day before the wedding. Gulp. This better work or I’ll be in big trouble.
Country bumpkin that I am I’ve never even heard of these. How very neat! And as usual, it looks like you are doing a perfect job. 🙂 I love this countdown!
Blessings on your own countdown, too! Although MOG (Mother of the Groom) is way easier!
Agreed! MUCH easier. My MoB role is following very quickly, though; I’m hoping for a little breather in between the two. 🙂
What?? Another wedding for you? Do tell!!
Will these be available on auto-ship from QVC?
Never! I do not plan to spend my retirement making cake pops! This is a labor of love…
But 😦 for me
I’m in trouble. Anything I can pop into my mouth in multiples can be a dangerous thing……but I’m game!
When do we dip?
Friday morning, the 12th. Get your wrist in shape: dip, twirl, dip, twirl….
