Last night I attempted to make Bakerella’s famous cake balls (not to be confused with pops). I had all the necessary ingredients — a lovely piece of red velvet cake, yummy cream cheese frosting, and Baker’s white chocolate.
Bakerella makes the process seem so simple, yet the final product looks like a masterpiece. I began by crumbling the red velvet cake, as instructed.
Then I added the cream cheese icing into the bowl with the cake crumbs and mixed it all together until it was at a good rolling consistency.
I rolled the batter into beautiful cake balls — no problems here!
I melted the white chocolate in the microwave then began rolling one ball at a time in the white chocolate.
AND THIS WAS THE RESULT!
Cake bits came off into the white chocolate and the white chocolate didn’t form a smooth covering over the balls.
Oh geez. I got off to such a good start!
I’ll save you goodies for Attempt #2.
At least they still tasted good…
Yup, definitely still edible.
Bakerella, where did I go wrong?

I think these look delicious!!
It may help to let the first layer of white choc sit for a couple hours to dry and then dip it in a second layer of white choc to get a more smoother outside.. maybe??
looking forward to ur second attempt!
thats a good suggestion, i’ll definitely try that out next time!
I am requesting some type of green dessert in honor of st. pattys day…be sure to include the ingredients so I can attempt to make them 🙂
Oh don’t you worry! St. Patrick’s Day treats will be up shortly.
The chocolate sets up nicely when the cake balls are cooled before coating
