25 days of cookies {Cookie #18}: Cake Balls

I have heard of these through her website, but I have never attempted any of the fancy things she makes.  My friend told me about these and they sounded easy enough.  In my personal opinion, their cuteness outweighs their taste.  Next time, I may try it with homemade cake and frosting and see if I like it a little better.  Since this was more of an experiment, I didn't go to all the trouble.  I could see how you could get very creative with these, changing up the kinds of frosting, cake and sprinkle types.  They really could be made for any holiday.  I am sure bakerella's website has tons of ideas.

This is how I made mine.

I have one of these scoops from pampered chef and love it.

Cake Balls
Bake a cake from a box mix according to the directions.  
Mix the warm cake with a container of frosting in the mixer.  Roll into balls.
Put in the freezer until hard enough so they don't crumble when you dip them in almond bark.
Melt almond bark in microwave.  Dip the balls in with a toothpick.  Sprinkle them with whatever you desire.  Put on wax paper to dry.
