A wedding I went to back in March served these as their wedding cake. They were so much fun because they had about 8 different flavors to choose from and ample amount of each, so you could eat to your heart's delight. About 2 weeks ago, I passed a chic cupcake shop and thought I should try to make those truffles. I did a little bit of internet research and came up with my own recipe...And here it is:
-1 Homemade Cake (can make it from scratch - or from a box)
-1 can of frosting (can also make this homemade)
-Candy melts or Almond bark
While the cake is still warm, crumble it in a Kitchenaid and mix in the frosting to taste, until it's all mixed up.
Chill for about an hour
"Melon Ball" them unto wax paper and freeze for about 6 hours.
Melt the candy melts or almond bark, and dip your cupcake balls into it, and set out until dry
The flavors I made:
Chocolate cake & home made espresso buttercream frosting
Red velvet cake & cream cheese frosting
chocolate cake & homemade mint frosting
funfetti cake & funfetti frosting
*Don't use extracts to flavor the bark - it will lose it's ability to harden/stick to the truffle
*Use Wilton's food coloring to color the almond bark for decorating, or else it will cause it to not stick/harden
