Frost and fill cakes or cupcakes
I love cupcakes with fillings so I always fill them using a decorator bag or the cone method. I have a new handy tool called the cupcake corer by Cuisipro. It is quick and perfect. I love it. I use that and then fill.
For Red Velvet Balls rip up cake and stir in frosting. Roll in balls Chill until firm and then dip in melted white chocolate or almond bark and or melted chocolate or almond bark. Then drizzle with red tinted white chocolate.
I'm starting to like Cake balls more than I like cupcakes. Probably because I love frosting and you get good equal amounts of both.
