Red Velvet Cake Balls / Pops

Red Velvet Cake Balls covered in Dark Chocolate 

Lately, I have become a huge fan of Bakerella and the book Cake Pops. Cake Pops and Cake Balls are very similar. Really, the only difference is that the first one goes on a stick while the second remains as a ball. Pretty simple, huh?
The design and flavor possibilities are countless! I already have a couple *on my to-bake list* for Christmas and my Daughter's Birthday. 

In my opinion, Cake Balls / Cake Pops are really fun to make. Here is why: 
  • Your children or friends could make them with you
  • You could design your own shape of cake ball / cake pop
  • You can mix any flavors you'd like  ---talk about doing things non-traditionally!

This would be why I am so excited about making more Cake Balls / Cake Pops for Christmas and Birthday Parties. (My Daughter loves Mickey Mouse, so I will be trying my hands at cutting little Mickey and Minnie faces!) 


  1. Boxed Red Velvet Cake
  2. Cream Cheese Frosting
  3. Dark Chocolate bars
  4. White Chocolate
Okay, so ready to make your own? 

Start off by baking the cake and let it cool. Then cut it up ...

and crumble it! Talk about having fun in he kitchen!

Add Cream Cheese frosting (1 tub)

Mix it thoroughly.  (It can be done with a wooden spoon or spatula.)

Rich combination of red velvet cake and cream cheese frosting

The next step consists of making the cake balls. I did this when my Daughter was sleeping. It was so relaxing!
You could use your own hands to do it or use a scooper to get equal sized balls. 

Chill them in the fridge on aluminum foil or wax paper for a couple of hours or overnight. 

Once chilled, MELT the chocolate on a double boiler.

QUICKLY pour over the cake balls. 

Take a second and watch the chocolate run down. 
It's like making a little chocolate fountain in your own kitchen. 

Chill it again so the chocolate hardens. 

(I melted white chocolate afterwards to decorate the cake balls. Then we chilled it for a bit. This step is totally up to you. My Hubby had  *a few* before they were ready, hehehe)

Treat yourself to some red velvet chocolate cakes! :-)

Crochet is so fun and relaxing. Crocheting is even more fun when we get to use our skill and make crochet gifts for everyone we know. Or perhaps when we can even use our crochet as a business and sell our handmade items at craft shows.

The ultimate goal of crochet is to SHARE what we are able to make with our hands. 

This crochet towel holder takes about 20 minutes or less to make depending on your speed.

How to Make a Crochet Fabric Fusion Dress

This post contains affiliate links.

The life of a crafter tends to revolve around trying new patterns, combining materials, making something completely new. Sometimes it turns out just like we imagined it would, other times...well,  those times are good too. The process of crafting  is what makes it fun and worth the ride. One book that has really inspired me into this fusion technique has been Fun with Yarn and Fabric: More Than 50 Projects to Sew, Crochet, it is filled with projects that combine fabric with yarn into beautiful projects like cushion covers, blankets, etc.It is also so colorful that it will really motivate you into trying new color schemes.

Some time ago, I got this turquoise chevron fabric from Hobby Lobby with the intention of making a dress that would combine crochet and fabric. Just like a fusion blanket, I would make a fusion dress: fabric and crochet together to make a new dress.
