Red Velvet Cake Balls

Red Velvet Cake Balls
Are you making Christmas or Valentine treats for someone special?

Well, put these on the Tippy Topof your list.


These are amazing beyond belief.

I made these totally tfromscratch bu you can easily make them with a cake made from a box and a tub of premade cream cheese frosting.

They were so flippin delicious I would encourage you to try it from scratch too, if at all possible.

I made the cake and frosting the day before I formed the cake balls and did the dipping.

I liked how this worked out time wise.

Honestly, I don’t think I would have enjoyed making them as much if I ‘d jammed it all into one day.

The rolling and dipping is fairly time consuming, although pretty simple.

This would be a great project to make with kids!

Can you say Hello teachers gifts!

    They look delicious. Bite size makes them better, perhaps I can resist a big piece of cake.

    I used to work at a cake ball bakery and had to make these all the time ( the rolling, dipping, and decoration part). I wanted to make some myself AND THIS WAS SO PERFECT. Everyone loved it and it came out just as good as the bakery who had a “secret recipe”….it’s not a secret anymore!! love this!!

    Hi, I was planning on making these for a party but I was wondering how many cake pops it yields.

    • Kathleen

      Approximately 45 if you roll then 1 1/2 inches in diameter.
