Cake balls–first attempt
My awesome friend Liz sent me Bakerella’s new cookbook and inspired me to try these cute treats. Our reason to celebrate: Jen’s birthday and her husband Colin’s acceptance into nursing school. I made Bakerella’s basic cake balls for Colin: white candy coating with red crosses using red food-safe marker.
Then I tried her cupcake bites using pink candy coating for Jen’s birthday treats. Then I tasted the coating (because, you know, who doesn’t taste as they bake?). Instead of chocolate or even vanilla flavored, it was strangely familiar yet not tasty. I couldn’t figure it out. Peppermint? Nope. Strawberry? Nope. Finally it hit me: bubble gum. Yuck. So I switched back to white “frosting” for the cupcakes and decorated them all with leftover Easter sprinkles.
Despite their rather lumpy appearance, they were delicious, and disappeared fast.
