Okay so this little treat is something we came up with after thinking about fun treats for birthdays. I absolutely love Bakerella! Her famous Cake Balls are to die for and if you haven't made these go check out her site, bake a cake and make these for a loved one or even just for yourself. Anyways my older brother doesn't like chocolate cake can you believe it? We were thinking of things to make for his birthday cake we decided why not make the cake balls and instead of chocolate cake use a different kind of cake. Even though his birthday is way past i thought i would still make them. Well our first stray from perfection was lemon cake. It was AMAZING!
I'm not very good at dipping chocolate and they don't look professional but one taste and ill have ya hooked
I take the easy way and just make a store bought cake. The lemon frosting was what really made it go over the top and since nothing goes better with lemon then semi sweet i grabbed a bag of that.
The rest is cake(pun was intended) just bake a cake, destroy it, add frosting and roll them out.
I didn't have any lollipop sticks left and i didn't have the patients to roll each cake ball this time so i used a silicone brownie bite tray and threw them in the freezer. I like to leave mine overnight it makes them so easy to dip.
After dipping them in the semisweet chocolate i swirled a little white chocolate i colored yellow to let people know they were lemon.
They were heaven. I took some over to my mother as a little thank you for watching my kiddo and my father just kept saying wow these are good.
My mother and i decided a cherry cake would be the next experiment. We even thought Carrot cake with cream cheese or for a surprise for my hubby we would try the rainbow chip(his all time fav). Let us know what kind of cake you would try!
