Authors Robin Ankeny and Charlotte Lyon started The Cake Ball Company in 2006, and it has quickly become the leader in the cake ball market. Perfect for both new and experienced bakers and all those who are sick of boring plain cakes and the cupcake trend, cake balls are bite-sized bits of moist cake blended with rich icing and surrounded in a beautiful chocolate shell. Cake balls are super-fun to make and the end product is cute yet elegant--not to mention delicious--making them the ideal dessert for parties, brunches, showers, weddings, and more. Included within this tasty little cookbook you will find three cake and three icing recipes, for which all of the 51 cake ball recipes in the book are based on, troubleshooting tips, decorating and packaging ideas, and 45+ full-color photos throughout. Some of the tasty recipes include Southern Red Velvet, Triple Chocolate
Chip, Gingerbread, Tiramisu, Carrot Cake, Strawberries and Cream, and many more.
"Where conventional slices often fall short, the so-wrong-they're-right spheres of decadence offer cake and frosting in every bite." - "The Wall Street Journal" "The decadent, dough-like consistency of these yummy treats are so surprising (and satisfying!) that they disappeared within minutes of arriving at the "Cosmo" office when we decided to do a taste test. Good luck not devouring them before you give 'em to the lucky recipient!" - "Cosmopolitan" "Never mind cupcakes. The new bakery trend: cake balls." - "Food Network Magazine" "Move over macarons: These treats are small, Southern, filled with sugar--and may be the next hot dessert trend." - "Salon"
