I wanted to make something special for the twins classes for Valentine's Day and decided to make these cute little candy cake bites! They are easy to make and fun to eat! Just the perfect size for little hands. <3
You'll need a cake cooked, cooled and crumbled. I used the rainbow cup cakes and mini cakes I made the boys. You can also use prepackaged snack cakes, the ones with filling inside. I did red velvet balls the other day that way.
If you have leftover cake and don't want to finish eating it, make cake balls out of it, put in a freezer bag and pop in the freezer! <3
frosting, can, homemade or in a spray can
mini muffin pan
candy melts or chocolate chips
I'm showing blue cake below but I thought this was pretty. It naturally went into a heart shape. <3
This was a cupcake, I just added a little icing. I had the kind in a squirt can and just squirted a little in. If you are using a whole cake, start with 1/2 can frosting and add more, if needed, to get the cake crumbles to stick together.
You want the crumbles to come together to form a ball. Place on waxed paper as you make them.
Melt almond bark. Put mini wrappers, you'll throw these away, in a mini muffin pan.
Immediately top with the bake balls you just made.
Place in freezer until set.
While they are in the freezer, melt your top coating of candy and have your toppings ready. Might as well call the kids, you know how they love to decorate!! I used Wilton's candy melts. You can use another color of almond bark, if you wish.
Remove from freezer and unwrap. Let it sit for just a couple of minutes.
Grab the bottom and dip the cake ball in the melted candy to just cover the top of the bottom piece of candy.
Immediately decorate. <3
Aren't they cute? <3 and Hugs!
