Cake Bites!

A new friend of ours turned 22 on Saturday, and I made a massive amount of red velvet cake bites to celebrate!

If you haven't eaten a cake bite, please believe me that one bite will change your life.

I know that I tend to exaggerate, but seriously. These are amazing. (The originator of this recipe is Bakerella - she does some pretty amazing things!)

Let me show you:

1) Mix up a batch of red velvet box cake mix. I love how bright the color is!

2) Bake the cake, and let it cool completely. Then break it into pieces and put it in a big bowl.

3) Add a whole jar of cream cheese frosting. Don't count the calories; just do it.

4) Mix the cake and the frosting together until they're completely combined.

5) Put the mixture in the fridge for about an hour, then roll into little balls. I put mine on parchment paper. Put these back in the fridge for another hour.

6) I put lollipop sticks in them to make them cute and easier to dip. Then I melted some Baker's chocolate and dipped away!
Warning: If you buy cheap almond bark and add green food coloring to it, bad things happen.

I don't want to talk about it.

7) Put the dipped cake bites back in the fridge to let the chocolate set up, and voila!

Instead of treaties with other countries, we should just offer them cake bites. Bin Laden would come out of hiding for these.


  1. How did your cake bites turn out so amazing!? Mine looked terrible!

    Also, never over cook almond bark...

  2. How did they turn from green to brown?

  3. I think it takes a few times practice to get decent looking cake bites...and lots of putting them back in the fridge/freezer if they're getting too lumpy...
