Cake Balls

Inspired by my upcoming visit with Bakerella and the signing of her new book "Cake Pops", I decided to give them a shot.  Of course, I forgot to get lollipop sticks, so I decided to start easy and make them just balls.  I learned several things from my adventure.

1.  Candy chocolate melted and placed on cooling racks sticks.  Better put it on parchment paper and then trim the excess.
2.  Candy coating is a lot harder than most things I have done.  I need a class in how to use chocolate properly . . . maybe in modeling chocolate too so I can kill two birds with one stone.  Mary, if you are reading I'll be looking for your next class. :)

But they are fun, and taste like very small pieces of cake. :)  Chocolate cake with chocolate frosting (of course!!)

Mmm...I don't know about you but I could really just eat them without the coating.  But they wouldn't be nearly as cute.

So I got everything ready. . . 

And wha-la!  Little pumpkins.

And last but not least, my pumpkin patch.....

Hope you guys are able to try them!

Happy Baking!
