Okay so finally finishing up the big update I have to do. These are from around Christmas and I wanted to make something wintery.
So this is really easy. Make some red velvet batter and bake it for 20-25 minutes in 350 degrees. Take it out and let it cool. While it’s baking make a standard cream cheese frosting. Cut up the red velvet cake like so:
Mix it with 2 c cream cheese frosting.
Shape them into balls.
Now this step is really important. Place the balls in the freezer for at least 30 minutes so they hold their shape. While you wait, melt some white candy melts. After they are thoroughly chilled, stick one end of the red velvet cake ball into the prongs of a fork. Quickly dip the ball in the melted and cooled white candy melt.
Now for the fun part! Melt some green candy melts and place it in a piping bag with a leaf tip [I used #67].
Then pipe on the leaves!
Do the same thing with red candy melts and dot on the holly berries.
Voila! Easy, simple and adorable.
RED VELVET CAKE [I use Martha Stewart’s recipe cuz she’s my idol]
CREAM CHEESE FROSTING
Beat butter and cream cheese with a mixer on medium-high speed until fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Reduce speed to low. Add sugar, 1 cup at a time, and then vanilla; mix until smooth. Frosting can be refrigerated for up to 3 days; before using, bring to room temperature, and beat until smooth.
