Red Velvet Cake Balls – First Try…

Now let me tell you where I think we went wrong….too much frosting!

We started to build the cake balls from a Betty Crocker box mix (which is much easier than trying to create my own) (make according to box directions). We prepped the cake the day before to ensure it was entirely cool because it would not work without that being proper.

Next, we made ourselves homemade frosting (because store-bought tastes store-bought and it’s so easy to make your own!)

Tip: When the cake is finally cooled and you have broken up the cake well, slowly (and I mean slowly) add the frosting in small batches to develop the correct consistency you are looking for. Otherwise the cake balls will fall apart.
