I love to create sculpted cakes! While writing that sentence I realised that I have not posted many sculpted cakes on this blog, something I will rectify in the near future. Anyway, as a result of the sculpting/carving there are always cake scraps. The kids help out with disposing of these scraps but inevitably the majority end up in the bin. I came across Cake Balls or Cake Pops (if you insert a pop stick) on the net and thought I would give them a go.
With my cake scraps (this time banana white chocolate mud), I popped them into the food processor and whizzed them until they were crumbs. Then I added a couple of tablespoons of vanilla frosting and whizzed for a couple of seconds more. I rolled this mixture into balls and set aside on a tray. We love dark chocolate in our house so I melted some 70% cocoa chocolate to dip the balls into. After they were dipped, I sprinkled them for a bit of colour and put them in the fridge to set. The result – YUMMO!!!
