Rolling Cake Balls – How to tip

I made cake balls a few weeks ago for The Bug Man’s Birthday.

This was my forth time making them,

and the part I dislike the most is rolling all of the cake balls.

Then it dawned on me what would make this part easier……

I bought a cookie dough scoop !

This made it SO much easier!

I didn’t have to roll all of those cake balls AND they all came out the same size!

If you’re not familiar with how to make these little bits of heaven…

    I so just had one of those, why didn't I think of that, moment. I have made bagillions of cake balls and have always hand rolled. I. Hate. That. Part.
    Thanks for the idea.
