Lemon Cake Balls
This was my very first attempt at making cake balls. If you're curious as to what cake balls are, well, let me explain it to ya.
Cake. Frosting. Chocolate.
It's that easy!
Now, my favorite cake flavor is lemon. So I made lemon cake balls with a white frosting and white chocolate. It's super easy to get creative with these and do your favorite flavor.
One tip I suggest: Make them cake pops. Less mess, easier to dip, easier to eat, and probably cuter!
1 box lemon cake mix, baked as per directions on the box
1 container of white frosting
1 pkg white chocolate for coating (Also known as almond bark or wafers)
1. Bake the cake as directed on the box. Let it cool completely.
2. Once the cake is cool, cut it up into cubes and crumble using your fingers or a food processor. I used the food processor, it was less messy and quicker, the crumbles were also more consistent!
3. Spoon about 3/4 of the frosting into the crumbles and mix until well combined. This should hold together rather easily. If it's too dry or still too crumbly, add more frosting!
4. Using a small spoon or cookie scoop, form the mixture into balls and place them on a cookie sheet. Try to get them as round as possible. This takes practice!
5. Once you've formed all the balls, place them in the freezer for 30 minutes.
6. Melt the chocolate as directed on the package. I melted mine in the microwave so I wouldn't scorch it on the stove top.
7. Get the cake balls out of the freezer and using a fork, dip them into the white chocolate and coat the whole ball. Using the side of the bowl, gently tap the fork with the cake ball on top so you can get an even coating of the chocolate.
8. Slide of the fork back onto the cookie sheet. Repeat until you're finished!
** Store in the fridge for a crunchy shell and to keep them from melting. **
