Not Quite Bakerella…..Cake Balls
A few months ago I was baking up a storm for various holidays and functions. One recipe that I had seen that looked soooooo sinfully delcious was cake balls (or cake pops) from Bakerella. She made it look so easy so of course I had to try.
Well, I should have known. lol I’ve seen my fair share of projects gone wrong in the kitchen and this one is right up there! The instructions were great and they really were pretty simple but I don’t think they came out as good as bakerellas. What do you think?
Truth be told, I did dip mine in chocolate like she did but they got kind of crumbly. So, being the “Girl Lazy” I opted to drizzle chocolate on undipped balls. All in all, they did taste delicious. The girls loved them but until I master this recipe (and technique), I will keep them as an “at home” treat. lol
If you have never heard of Bakerella or been to her site, you are missing out. So many delicious treats and recipes. 🙂

These look so yummy. Thanks for posting, now I might just have to make them myself! 🙂
You are too funny! They both look yummy!!! That’s all that matters right?
Thanks for joining Get Your Craft on Thursday. Please join me next week for another great party!
I’m a major novice on crafty baking, so thanks for switching me on to Bakerella. Holy mackerel does she make me want to get all the gear and start baking this second! Unlike other crafting, even the less than perfect can still be perfectly tasty too, but yours are still cute!
I’ve been making Cake Balls for a while now & one thing that helps is freezing them for atleast 30 min before dipping.
I posted a tutorial on my blog and have some suggestions for dipping.
I’ve made some not-quite-Bakerella cake balls before and mine looked 10 times worse than yours. But I didn’t care because they tasted heavenly – much like yours. Taste is all that matters, my friend!!!! (I actually think yours look really quite attractive!)
I really enjoy making cake balls, but have not dipped them for a while for the following reason: My daughter needed a last minute snack to take to school for a party over the holidays. I had a batch of undipped cake balls in the fridge, and she grabbed those and ran out of the door before I could stop her. Long story short, that night two parents and a teacher contacted me for the recipe!! If I don’t have time to dip them, I put them in mini-muffin cups and pipe additional frosting on top. Put the minis in a cake pan, and you have a beautiful birthday (or other occasion) “cake”. Sorry to take up so much real estate here, but I didn’t want you to be disappointed because you couldn’t master the dipping technique!!
I am so glad I’m not the only one that had issues making the Cake Balls, atleast yours turned out a WHOLE lot better than mine did 🙂 I only put chocolate on a few of them, and froze the rest to just snack on.
They look yummy. Anything chocolatey and I am so there! Thanks for sharing at ‘Look at me, I’m SO Crafty!’ at Fun to Craft.
