For Mother’s Day this year, I decided to make a gift from the kitchen. I had seen this recipe for red velvet cake balls at mykitchencafe.blogspot.com. She actually got the recipe from Bakerella. I decided to give those a try. Personally these cake balls were average in taste to me, but my oldest son loved it and wants them for his birthday.
These cake balls begin by making a cake from a box mix. Just get a red velvet cake and make it according to the package directions. Once the cake is cooked and cooled, you crumble it and mix it with a container of cream cheese frosting. I think I may have like these better if they were made with homemade cream cheese frosting, rather than frosting from a can. It turns into a soft truffle filling. Last thing to do is to coat the cake balls in almond bark. I also used some pink candy melts to drizzle over the top.
