Cake Balls are Go!

See what I mean?

Last week, I stumbled across this post from Bakerella, and I knew I had to get in on that shit.

Let the photo essay begin.

1. Bake cake. And yes, for the first time in years, I made a cake from a box. PS: I now live in a place where Red Velvet Cake doesn't make people go, "Whaaaaaa?"

2. Crumble cake.

3. Add cream cheese frosting (from a can! And yet, I am not ashamed. It goes with the box cake?)

4. Smush it all together.

5. Form into balls (BALLS!) and chill.

6. Coat with white chocolate. Run out of white chocolate, and melt down the chocolate chips you have squirelled away in your pantry, just for emergencies like this. Coat remaining with regular chocolate. Let cool down and harden.

7. The end.

I think next time, I'll set up the balls (BALLS!) on a rack and poor the chocolate over, as rolling started to brush off crumbs from the balls (BALLS!) into the coating. Lesson. Learned.

Holy Hannah! When you come to Vancouver, you're making these for us, right?

So, uh, when are you coming to Vancouver?!

Rose, I am boarding the Cake Ball Express right now!

Whatever on you, Collin Ng. You disappear from the face of the planet and demand to be rewarded with cake ball goodness?

I had the opportunity and it totally passed me by. I should be ashamed when there are apparently so many Canadians starving for cake balls.

Yeah, I don't even know what to say about you, Amy Mo.
