For my dear Mother's birthday, I couldn't resist baking up something irresistible. Anyone who has heard of Bakerella, knows about her delicious Cake Pops. She's a genius! I do mine a little differently, but always check her site for great ideas and inspiration. I really don't know how she comes up with such creative creations!
I decided to make my cake truffles and present them to my mom as if they were a box of candy.
First, I baked a Devil's Food Cake to use as the base of my "candy box". Then, I cut the cake into the size I wanted and leveled it off. Once it was perfect, I rolled red fondant and attached it to the side of the cake to look like the sides of a box. I attached the fondant with chocolate frosting.
After my cake truffles were complete, I plopped each one into a tiny baking cup and set them into the "box".
I made them in all different shapes and with different decorations so that they would look like a delicious box of candy. Round truffles, square truffles, rectangular truffles, sprinkles, chocolate swirls, fondant dots . . . a little bit of everything.
And of course, I completed the box with a bow.
Happy Birthday, Mom!
