stool up to the counter and dig in. My neighbor Charlie taught me how to make these a couple weeks ago. She makes them with neighbors, grandkids and kids in the daycare she works at. She used chocolate cake and frosting, but I have a general aversion to chocolate frosting and a serious weakness for lemon desserts. And as it is my blog we are doing it my way. (You're welcome to make yours however you please. :D Most flavors should work.)
Easy Lemon Cake Truffles
1 box of lemon cake, prepared per directions
1 container of lemon frosting
sprinkles, coconut flakes, dried fruit, colored sugar and small candies
1. Take baked cake and crumble in a bowl.
2. Dump in entire container of frosting. Mix thoroughly.
3. Using an ice cream scoop form balls from cake mixture. Roll into a more even shape.
4. Roll into toppings.
5. Refrigerate before eating.
When I made them with Charlie they looked AMAZING. This time I believe there were two
problems with mine. a) I think I should have let my cake cool off a little more, so the "dough" was less sticky, b) My two year old and five year old were involved. Things are not going to be picture perfect. I'm ok with that. We had fun. :)
