Now, please feast your eyes on the tragedy that was my first set of cakeballs:
How awful!!! This nightmare was the result of hours of work and frustration. I had watched 2 YouTube videos, read articles and researched my dipping skills. Obviously, it is not as easy as it looks!
In the meantime, my Aunt purchased Bakerella's book and brought it over. After some more research, we realized the key to great presentation would have to involve a candy mold. So, we got one and the results were so much better than before!
However, as we worked, we realized we still had some issues. Note the size difference of these two!:
After we put the cake balls in the molds, we let them sit in the freezer for about 5 minutes. We then spooned chocolate on the top and the result was so irresitably cute! I was so proud of us! AND, the kicker is, not only did they look great, but they tasted awesome!
