Red Velvet Cake Bites
When it comes to cake recipes, red velvet cake is a very popular choice these days. You can enjoy the flavour of red velvet cake in bite-size form with this yummy recipe from Six Sisters Stuff. Why are things always so much better when they are bite-sized anyway? Is it because you can eat a few of them and not feel bad because they're so small? Or is it because all of the dessert's flavour is concentrated into a very tiny portion? Some people love bite-sized dessert recipes simply because they can make a few different flavours and then everyone can try out the different flavours instead of committing to just one flavour of cake. These cake bites from the Six Sisters Stuff website consist of a cake with the icing on it; then the whole thing is dipped in chocolate which takes the cake recipes to a whole other level. The sisters who run Six Sisters Stuff tried some of the cake bites from a local bakery and decided that these dessert recipes wouldn't actually be that difficult to make. The best thing is, one recipe makes a bunch of cake bites. Which makes them perfect for giving away as gifts or taking to parties.
They also don't take too long to make either. With about 45 minutes for prep work and then 30 minutes to bake, you're only looking at an hour and 15 minutes to make these. You don't even have to make your own cake batter from scratch if you use boxed cake mix. Just get a red velvet boxed cake mix to save some time. But if you want to make it from scratch, there are also plenty of great red velvet cake recipes online too. You'll also need a container of cream cheese frosting, or you can make your own, and you will need some chocolate candy coating. If you want to make the red decorations on top of the cake bites when they're finished, you'll also need some red candy melts.
First, you make the cake as directed on the box or in the directions of the recipe you're using. Then, when it comes out of the oven cool it completely. You can even put it in the freezer if you want to speed up the process or cool it overnight. Then, put the cake into a bowl and create crumbs out of it with your hands. Next, stir in the frosting using a half a cup at a time until you have a consistency that can hold it's shape when you form it into balls, then roll it into balls and put them on a plate or a baking sheet and squish them down with the bottom of a cup to create a disc shape. Then put them in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. Melt the white chocolate and then take a skewer to dip each ball into the chocolate to coat it and put it down on a baking sheet or plate. Then, put them in the fridge because to harden or sprinkle with some decorative sprinkles while the candy coating is still melted. If you want to decorate them with the red candy designs, just melt your red candy and then put it into a zip lock bag and cut a tiny hole at one of the corners. Gently squeeze out some of the red melted candy onto each of the cake bites in the design you like and allow them to set in the fridge. Then you can take them out and enjoy them or serve them up.***
