Cake Ball Tutorial by claremanson Cake Ball Tutorial by claremanson
i was looking for recipes for leftover cake yesterday and discovered a wonderful thing called cake balls so decided to try and give them a go

EDIT: I have no longer got the origanal copy of this so can not change it but on practice making thse i use a lot less cream cheese now, maybe half a tub

oh good luck with that, i tried doing some brownie balls on sticks back along, they would not stay on for long, only just long enough to take a few pictures but someone did give me a tip that i have not tried yet. dip the end of your sticks into some chocolate, this i am told should help give them something to stick onto so should not slide off. let me know how it goes :)

Thank you :) Yeah a lot of recipes say to do that. Most are chocolate, but i dont really like chocolate cake so i was looking for a normal cake recipe to do it with! I'm doing them for bonfire night, so i will let you know :)

hope it goes well, the key is in the texture, keep adding the cream cheese slowly until you have the right consistency, not too dry, not too wet and you should be okay :)

I made a similar recipe years ago but instead of cream cheese I mix in about half of a container of frosting to the crumbled up cake.

sounds good but maybe a bit sickly?

There's also a book I found called Cake Pops that does the frosting method like I do and it has tons of decoration tutorials.
