Tutorial: Cheater Cake Bites

I don’t know about you but I have oogled at everyone else’s cake pops and cake bites but hadn’t really tried it. So when I finally decided to give it go I wanted to make it easier on myself so skip some steps and low and behold it worked. Today I’m sharing my “Cheater Cake Bits” over at Making the World Cuter. See my tutorial here.

Today I want to share with you my cheater method of making cake balls. All you need is a slice of cake (I bought mine for just a few bucks at the grocery store) and some candy melts. I like this method since it saves you the trouble of first making a cake but it also makes it so if you wanted you could make a bunch of different flavors with out having to make a thousand.

First mash up the cake so that the frosting and the cake is well incorporated. Then roll a spoonful of the mixture into ball shapes and freeze.

Next melt the candy melts I like to do 10-20 seconds increments in the microwave stirring each time. Then take the frozen balls of cake and dip. Try to work quickly and let set on wax paper. Top with more candy melts, sprinkles or what ever you like if desired.

Easy right? One piece of cake (I think it was 1/4 of a sheet?) made 16 cake balls and they were really rich so most everyone just had 1 or 2. Perfect diet treat right?


  1. Short cuts to cake bites? Yay! I’m off to check it out!

  2. Brilliant idea Marissa….(I couldn’t figure out the comment thing over at MTWC, so I’m leaving it here!)

  3. Ooh dang! Those look amazing! I think that is the best idea to buy a slice from the store. If you got that many from a slice, I imagine you’d have a TON from a whole cake, jeez! Otis’ 2nd bday is next week, I may have to try this!!

  4. OK…I love easy and didn’t want to tackle cake bites because they are too complicated. This just might change my mind and I must pin! I’d love you to come link up at my Pin Me Linky Party.

  5. Love this idea! I’ve never done the real cake balls, but I’m all for anything easier!

  8. I LOVE a good shortcut! Thanks for the fabulous idea. They look delicious. Thanks for sharing, Marissa! Merry Christmas!

  9. not bad, and I like the idea of being able to make just a few, I always have to make a whole cake, and then I eat way more than I need;)

  10. Awesome idea- I love to eat cake pops, but they seemed like too much work to make. I might have to try this.
