Clue #1: Red Velvet Cake (maybe that's not such a good clue since you can use any cake)
Clue#2: Cream Cheese frosting (or in my case a tub of Betty Crockers Vanilla Frosting. Yes, I cheat......sometimes) :)
Clue#3: Two types of chocolate, milk and coloured white
Clue#4: They're pretty cute
Clue#5: Sprinkles and a smartie
Yep, they're Cupcake Bites. They didn't turn out quite as i'd hoped (they looked nothing like Bakerellas) but next time at least i'll know what i'm doing.
Here's what I did differently:
Since I didn't have a flower cookie cutter or a chocolate mould to hold the cake balls in I used a mini cupcake case in mini cupcake pans. I weighed the Red Velvet Cake Balls at 38g each (I think these were a little too big), put approx 1 1/2 tsp of melted dark chocolate in the bottom then pushed the balls down. I'll use a little more dark chocolate, maybe 2 - 2-1/2 tsp so the sides have a thicker layer of chocolate.
With the wrapper still on.
Taking the wrapper off. This photo doesn't do the cupcake wrapper method any justice. Make sure that the Bites are cold before you take the wrapper off otherwise the chocolate will come off with the wrapper (found that out the hard way!).
