~ Update on the Cake Balls ~

This morning I took the remaining cake balls out of the freezer and just frosted them with thinned cream cheese frosting. Since they were icy cold, the frosting worked well!  I'm thinking that's the easy way to do these "things" ~ :-)  Anyway, I delivered the whole kit and caboodle (you've done that haven't you?) to the grands. They were both with their friends so just visited with my son & d-i-l for a bit.  The report when they got back home this afternoon was...."they're AWESOME!"  That's all that really matters isn't it?

  1. I love cake balls. I first discovered them this past Christmas at a cookie exchange. They are very messy to make, but very worth it.

  4. I have a daughter getting married in August. We're catering the reception ourselves. Would it be worth making cake balls? Hmmm...the picture on your previous post sure looks pretty. I'll have to think about it. I'm glad they finally turned out for you.

  9. Hi Pat!
    Those turquoise cake balls sure do look beautiful! I give you an A+ for all your effort though! I'm sure your grandchildren gobbled them up just the same!

    I'll bet the cake balls will be fun to bake closer to Christmas. It's funny how the weather can help a recipe {like humidity when baking bread} and the same humidity can cause havoc!

    I think the important thing is that you tried something new!
    Have a wonderful Wednesday!
    Thank you so much for stopping by, Pat!
    Bless you always,
    Maria

  15. I told ya they would be great! By the way, I did the oreo balls that I told you about. Oh my, one bite was about all you could handle, they were so rich. As far as the process, it was no problem.
