You may remember back in March I had a huge cake ball project.
HUGE, as in 2000+ cake balls!
That’s roughly 55 regular sized cakes (9×13″ pans).
Or about 12 full sheet cakes! Plus a whole lotta frosting.
Not to mention approximately 66 POUNDS of CANDIQUIK! Holy moly.
These cake bites fed the guests that attended the 2012 Taste of the Timberwolves, a benefit dinner supporting the Timberwolves FastBreak Foundation.
A unique and great opportunity!
The pictures below will give you an inside peak at what “operation 2000 cake balls” looked like!

Have you made cake pops? Were they a complete disaster?
Yeah, me too. Seriously. We’ve all burned the heck out of our chocolate, lost a cake ball off the stick, had our perfectly good cake pops crack 5 minutes later and begin leaking weird stuff out everywhere! It’s sooo frustrating!
Don’t worry though, it gets better! But let me save you some time and sugar with a few tips…! Cool?
I’m obsessed with cake pops. I think they are the best thing since sliced bread. Whatever that means. Dang Bakerella, look what she started. Just kidding, I love her. By the way, did you know yesterday (February 1st) was National Cake Pop Day? It’s official.
I look back on my first cake pops/whatever you want to call them and they are sad (see below). Let’s just say, practice makes perfect.
If you need a laugh, just check out these girls experience when making cake balls for the first time.
My apologies for the long post, shoulda just wrote a book.
