How To Make Cake Balls!!!
Posted by OhMyGoodies
Don't throw out those cake scraps! These little treats, (sometimes referred to as "cake pops", "cake truffles" or "cake bon-bons" are so easy to make and are absolutely delicious! You can make these delightful cake balls using your leftover cake scraps, or even use an entire cake to make them!
- Decorating gloves
- Mixing Bowl with lid
- One cooled cake any size and any flavor (or you can use all those left over scraps)
- One bottle liquid coffee creamer any flavor complimentary to cake or anything to use as a binder, Butter cream icing, liqueur, etc.
- Melted Chocolate amount varies with how many balls need to be dipped
- Parchment Paper lined tray/plate/platter
Place cooled cake or scraps into a bowl in large pieces
Using a fork, crumble the cake into a nice crumb When it appears all the cake is crumbled use the fork, or your hands, and run thru it to make sure its all crumbled.
Crumbled cake will be soft and fluffy
Pour in liquid coffee creamer judging by eye, until a medium sized puddle forms, set aside for a moment
Place chocolate to be melted in a microwave safe bowl, microwave following melting directions. (Here I used 4 large bars of Ghirardelli brand White baking chocolate but any type of chocolate that will melt can be used)
While chocolate is melting, put on decorators/food safe gloves and begin mixing the crumb liquid mixture. I use gloved hands because its easier to get the feel of the mixture for consistency reasons rather then using a fork or spoon but you can use a fork or spoon if youd prefer. Mix and mash and smoosh until a soft mushy dough forms.
Once you get the mixture to the consistency you would like it, roll a small amount into a ball using the palms of your hands, or a cookie scoop, or a melon baler, anything will work for this. Place platter into the freezer for about 30-90 minutes
After removing platter from freezer, take one ball at a time, and roll it around in the melted chocolate with the help of a spoon. Place dipped balls back onto the parchment paper lined tray for drying. TIP: Store frozen un-dipped cake balls in an air tight container sealed with both lid and plastic wrap. Remove just before dipping to help the chocolate coating set.
Finished Cake Balls!!! Here is the finished product. Half are yellow cake, vanilla caramel liquid coffee creamer, dipped in white chocolate. The other half are chocolate cake, Amaretto liquid coffee creamer, rolled in powdered sugar. Store them in a sealed container in the freezer until just before serving, as they will sweat some. I serve them cold, but not frozen.
