How to Make Deviled Egg Cake Balls
I wanted to really drive the Easter theme home in these, so I used Linda's Famous Carrot Cake and her Classic Cream Cheese Frosting to make them. If you'd like to use white cake and frosting, it would be easier to cover when dipping them. But I'm always up for a good challenge, so I went with carrot cake!
The process really is quite simple and fun to do. All you have to do is bake the cake. Crumble it up and stir in the frosting. Find an plastic egg that opens lengthwise rather than across the equator. Form the balls in the egg halves and freeze them until they are solid. Dip them in white chocolate or almond bark and pipe on frosting "yolk." Of course a proper deviled egg needs a little sprinkle of red sugar.
I think theses did the trick. Matt LOOOOOOOOVES deviled eggs. He saw these on the buffet and asked if he could have an egg. Imagine his surprise when he picked it up and it was not what he expected! He is the only person I know who could actually be disappointed to find out it was cake instead! Silly man!
If you are looking for a fun treat for Easter, April Fool's Day, a picnic or a BBQ these would be perfect! Can you just imagine the looks on their faces when you show up with your tray of eggs?!
Deviled Egg Cake Balls
Makes about 4 dozen
1 carrot cake (or cake of your choice)
1 recipe cream cheese frosting
2 pounds white chocolate or almond bark
2-3 cups crusting buttercream dyed yellow
Red sugar, finer grain is better
- Crumble the cake into small crumbs.
- Stir in frosting. Spray egg halves with cooking spray. Press in cake/frosting mixture until firmly packed. Invert egg over your hand and let formed cake ball fall into your hand. Place on baking sheet lined with wax paper. Freeze for at least an hour.
- Melt white chocolate in double boiler (or in microwave safe bowl) until smooth.
- Take a few cake balls out of the freezer at a time and dip in white chocolate. Place back on wax paper and allow to set. Redip the flat side if you need to in order to make them smooth.
- Once completely set, pipe a small amount of frosting onto the white chocolate. Sprinkle with red sugar.
