I was fortunate enough to be in two different musicals with a local church, First United Methodist.
The first year I was in My Fair Lady (top 5 favorite musicals of all time) and this last year I was in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
The cast was really an amazing group of people and I really wanted to do a little baking for them.
But, with a cast of 60+ a regular cake during rehearsals would be a little tricky.
So, I decided to tackle the cake balls again.
Now, two years ago, I had successfully made 2 cake pops:
hello kitty - for my friend Jessica's birthday, and
a little chickie I was trying to take to an Easter/Family reunion thing.
So, 2. Oh believe me...there were supposed to be more:
The problem was that my chocolate was a brand I'm not fond of (but had no other option) or that I had them too cold before I dipped them.... because all the rest cracked or oozed and weren't cute at all. :(
But, that was then, and these were just cake balls.
A little dip in the vat of chocolate. A nicely contrasting drizzle on top. Easy and done :)
It also helped that they were in the mini cupcake liners. Made them look like truffles I think.
Strawberry, cream cheese truffles covered in white and dark chocolate.
