Simple fact of life: People like to dip at parties.
It's usually a chip and dip situation but sometimes the dippin' gets unconventional. Like when the host busts out a plate of birthday cake balls with a side of funfetti frosting dip!
These are EASY. The only tricky part is getting your hands on a silicon ball tray And by tricky I mean that you have to spend $9.99 at Lincraft.
Birthday Cake Balls Ingredients
makes 40 balls (feel free to halve the recipe for a smaller batch but they go quick!)
Note: You can use boxed cake mix or my recipe below. No judgement if you go the way of the box!
- ¾ cup sugar
- 1 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ⅔ cup milk
- 1 egg
- ½ teaspoon vanilla
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Birthday Cake Balls Instructions
1. Preheat oven to 160C/320F
2. Spray both sides of your silicon cake pop tray with cooking spray
3. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and beat until smooth
4. Spoon into one half of the cake pop tray (the side without the whole), filling each half circle to the top
5. Place the other half of the silicon tray on top and place on a baking tray then put another baking pan of some sort on top (when the balls start rising, they sometimes push the upper half of the tray up a bit
6. Bake for 15 minutes and allow to cool completely before removing the upper silicon tray; when you do remove them, do so carefully and slowly!
