Easter Egg Cake Balls Since I’ve been quite busy lately, I’m taking advantage of timing and reposting one of my favorites for Easter.  These were a big hit and I’m sure I’ll be making them again this year! Although I don’t quite get it as I guess I’m just not that much of a cake

This month’s challenge was just made for me, what could be better than a strawberry cream cake?  I did have one slight problem and I need to make sure I remember next time; if you want to keep the kids from eating the strawberries (that you know are their favorite)  make sure you tell them

I’ve been testing ideas for Daughter’s college graduation which of course we want to celebrate with the proper decorum (in other words parental glee).  She wants cake balls of course, but I did not want to spend the next week making hundreds of them after realizing that my original plan of making a replica of the
