If you’ve been around for a while, you know how much we love our Cake Bites from Sweet Tooth Fairy! Unfortunately, living in California, I don’t get them as often as I’d like (although I do order them for myself on every occasion I can think of!). I made these Strawberry Lemonade Cake Bites right at home – and they weren’t too hard to make at all! They are perfectly sweet with just a hint of sour – and they’re the perfect color for Valentine’s Day. They’ll tie me over until I make it back to Utah to stock up on cake bites again. 😉
Ingredients called for on cake mix (usually oil, eggs, and water)
1 (16 oz) container lemon frosting
1 lb white chocolate candy coating or almond bark
Pink candy melts
Bake the cake according to directions on the package. Let it cool completely, then put the entire cake in a bowl and crumble it up. (I found that it was easiest to just use my hands to completely crumble the cake.)
Stir in the container of frosting, about ½ at cup at a time. Once it reaches a nice consistency that will hold together when you roll it in a ball, it?s perfect.
Roll the mashed cake and frosting into ½ - ¾? balls, then smash them down so that they are shape of a disc.
Place bites on a large baking sheet covered in wax paper and place them into the fridge for about 30 minutes to set up.
Melt white chocolate candy coating according to directions on back of package. Use a skewer to dip each ball - poke it into the cake ball and dip it into the melted bark. Rotate each bite a couple of times to make sure it is evenly covered with chocolate. Stick the cake bite back onto the wax paper. Let the bites set up.
To drizzle the candy melts on top, melt candy according to package directions. Spoon melted candy into a resealable sandwich bag. Clip a TINY corner on the bag and drizzle the candy melts onto each bite.
