Cupcakes...gone mini!

Bakerella's Cupcake Bites

Boy are these the cutest things ever! I had a blast making them, even though they took up most my day. They were so worth it! I was calling these a "Cake Ball in Disguise"

What you need....
1 box cake mix- whatever flavor you want to use for the filling (Cook as directed)(and I used strawberry)

1 can frosting (I used Cream Cheese frosting)

1 package of chocolate almond bark

Squeeze bottle

Sprinkles and M&M's for decoration

Bake cake as directed on box and let cool. After the cake cools mix the cake and frosting together in a large bowl. I froze mine for about 30 minutes to an hour. Once firm roll cake mixture into balls and set aside. Freeze those up for a little bit, maybe 15 to 20 minutes. Get candy molds ready to set the cake balls in. Melt the almond bark and put in squeeze bottle. Squeeze about half to 3/4 full of the candy mold, then set a cake ball into mold. (it will form the bottom of the cupcake)

Let those freeze up just a bit. While those are freezing melt the Colored Candy Melts in microwave to the directed time. Then dip the bites into the colored candy molds and while they are still melted, sprinkle the sprinkles on top and then dollop with a M&M. They make the cutest little desserts that everyone will have a fit over. Time consuming but so much fun to make!

Check out Bakerellas website, she has some of the cutest things she does with little cake pops.
