The next "big" thing after cuppycakes?
I learned that these small cake balls are edging out trendy cupcakes and mini-size desserts to satisfy those who have a sweet tooth. Poor me, I seem to be out of the loop on what's in on the culinary scene. Hey, they were even offered in the Neiman Marcus gift-giving catalog and are showing up at upscale bakeries.
And wait, there's more! According to a story in The Dallas Morning News, home baker Robin Ankeny opened The Cake Ball Co., a custom baking and mail-order business.To make these cake balls, all you have to do is bake a cake (whatever pleases your fancy) and once it's cooled, you simply crumble it up, mix with any kind of frosting, then roll the mixture into tiny balls. Then -- here's where your creative juices can run wild -- the balls can be dipped in chocolate, nuts or whatever confectionery coating you can think of. - Times Picayune
