Hello, Gorgeous!!

Tonight I made cake ball samples for my mom's work friends.
Here's just a couple pics of the process. (For a real tutorial, visit Bakerella, which is where I learned how.)

Start by baking a Red Velvet Cake. (Go ahead and use a box mix - I won't tell!)
Once cooled, crumble it all up into a bowl.

Next, mix it up with some cream cheese frosting, and roll into balls.

Toss 'em in the freezer for about 15 minutes, then dip in chocolate!
Voila- Cake Balls!!
(Now you can indulge me by looking at all these pics - can you tell I'm experimenting with photo taking???)

I hope you enjoyed my cake ball "photo shoot". ;)  They were very cooperative models, and fairly easy to shoot. None of them had diva attitudes, which is always a relief for a photographer.
Oh dear! Can you tell I'm a little punch drunk?? I need to get myself to bed before I start naming them all and giving them personalities!! haha (It's been a looong day!!)
Good night!
