It's not often we have left over cake, let alone left over red velvet cake. It is amazing after all, but we were doing another project, and suddenly had loads of left over cake that truly is too good to throw away, but it was all in off cuts, so not much use for anything. Light bulb moment...cake balls were born and I have to say as I am not much of a cake ball fan, these were too good and I may have eaten more of them than my fair share.
SO, even if you have to accidentally make a red velvet cake in order to try these, we think it will be totally worth it. (And they are kind of cute don't you think?) Tis the season!
