Every single one of these looks like it will be tasty. I'm not sure why, but Cake Balls just seem to be so much easier to make than Cake Pops. I like that this book not only gives you recipes, but explains why the recipes are designed the way that they are so that if you were so inclined, you could design your own recipes as well.

I LOVE cake balls (and actually have developed my own recipe for “brownie balls” – search my blog) and this book is filled with delicious recipes!

Most recipes for “cake balls” that I have seen are from the cake mix and canned frosting creations – but not these. These have a homemade flavor that you just can’t beat…

The beginning of the book “Baking and Creating Fabulous Cake Balls” (page 12) is essential reading to those who want to know more about how to make foolproof cake balls. Tips and tricks included are ingredients, equipment, techniques and other “lessons” that are a must read. I found it very interesting.

The book continues “The Basic Recipes” which includes just that – the basic recipes for the cakes and frostings that are used in the recipes that follow. “Yellow Buttermilk Cake” (page 29), “Red Velvet Cake” (page 33), “Banana Cake” (page 36), “Milk Chocolate Brownies” (page 38), “Cream Cheese Frosting” (page 40), “White Chocolate Ganache” (page 43) and “Pastry Cream” (page 46) are just some examples.

The “cake balls” start on page 48 and are filled with fun and flavor. “After-Dinner Chocolate-Mint Cake Balls” (page 49) are a delicious and fun twist on the after dinner mint that is served at the end of dinner parties.

“Apple Pie Cake Balls” (page 50) are a fabulous twist on apple pie! Who would have thought about an apple pie – cake ball!? Genius.

I just made the Key Lime Balls, the flavor is divine, delicate and at the same time intense.
I also used the white cake recipe and added fresh cranberries, baked as directed and then made cranberry cake balls without any other binder, just crushing the cake and the cranberries. I covered them in red Wilton chocolate and put dried cranberries on top. They were amazing.
In the future I will use her cake recipes for regular cakes, they are perfect.

Love this book. Found it in the library & had to buy a copy. Have made several of the cake balls & they are all a great hit at parties & pot lucks. The zesty lemon balls are a massive hit with everyone. The author recommends some pretty hard to get and pricey covering chocolate but I use the stuff from the supermarket & they still taste wonderful. Just make sure you don't use chocolate chips for covering. It just does not work...

This "how to" cook book for manually made cake balls is perfect. I have a cake pop maker and my pops didn't come out half as nice as they did by manually making them. Can't wait to keep trying more recipes!

The Cake Balls in this cookbook look delicious. I am an accomplished baker and the only reason I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 stars is that the recipes are more time consuming than most; however, they will be delicious and if you have the time this is your go-to cake ball book. Enjoy!
