Sweet Bakes Of Mine

Enjoying Life One Sweet Day At A Time

Hi Ya Sweet Bakers!  Happy Monday & Happy President’s Day!  Today I got cancelled from work today!  So I’m catching up on things…..mostly chores at home.  The fun things…..lol! Like Laundry, sweeping, mopping…….the fun stuff I look forward to my days off!!! hahaha!!  But right now that I have a chance, I wanted to do a short photo tutorial how I did my Cake Balls I did for Valentine’s Day.  Something short and sweet.

First off, I use to use Wilton’s Candy Chocolate Melts but sometimes when I attempt to melt the chocolate, it wouldn’t melt the way it should.  I would use shortening and still it would harden up.  I even bought the Wilton Chocolate Melting Pot and still didn’t melt good! So I saw this chocolate bark at Walmart and I’ve seen some baking blogs that they use this stuff too!! So I thought I give it a try!!

Seriously this Plymouth Pantry Almond Bark is AWESOME!!! I have no problems what so ever when it comes to melting it!!! It’s that good!!!  Highly recommend it!! But I’ll keep trying the Wilton’s Candy Melts once in a while, hopefully I’ll have luck! :)

 

So what I do is i cut 4 or 5 pieces of the almond bark and warm it up in microwave in a pyrex dish for 30 seconds.  I keep doing this for 1 minute and 30 seconds until it’s really melted.

As you can see below, it’s nice and runny!  Perfect for those Cake Balls I made! :D

Now, what I did next was I took my cake ball and just dropped it in the white chocolate.  I rolled it around using a spoon to help me.

To help me pick up the chocolate covered cake ball I used Wilton’s Candy Dipping Fork & spoon.

 

 

 

I gently give small taps while holding the cake ball for the excess chocolate melt to come off.  Then I gently lay it down on m baking sheet with parchment paper and right away apply my colorful sprinkles!

Once they’re all ready and dried up, it’s now time to enjoy some delicious Cake Balls!!!

  • Thanks for stopping by and leaving such a wonderful comment! I am so glad I was able to help you with the Marvel Cakes. Do let me know how they turn out and please post a picture on my FB page.
    Love how your cake balls turned out, so pretty. Did you see my Star Wars cake pops on my site? There’s no tutorial but I posted pictures. I look forward to seeing what else you bake up!

  • Did you bake your cake balls in a pan, or hand roll them from “cake dough” like Bakerella does it? They’re SO perfect!!
