Patriotic Cake Balls

Earlier this week I told you about some rainbow cake pops I made. Well, when I was making the cake pops, I put aside about a dozen or so cake balls and froze them so I could make some easy treats for this upcoming 4th of July holiday.

This time though, I didn't make them into pops, but instead kept them as balls. Cake balls - I don't know if I like that term. I may have to think of something else to call them. Any ideas??

This time I dipped them into white candy melts - I think I did a better job at getting it smoother. Not perfect, but definitely better. Then I dyed some of the extra white melted candy melts with a blue gel food coloring to get the desired blue that I wanted. I put it into a squeeze bottle and just started drizzling away. While it was still wet, I sprinkled on some red cake sparkles.

Then I was thinking of how to present these little guys. If you're hosting a party and having a dessert bar, I think a fun way would be to place them in martini glasses. Very elegant!

If you want to send your guests home with some treats, package a few of them in a clear cello bag and top with some red, white and blue ribbon. They'll love it! (and YOU!)

Let me know if you make anything fun for the holiday. Would love to hear about it!
