March Madness Basket(cake)balls
Cute basketball cake balls perfect for basketball lovers, any basketball party, or March Madness!
Serves: 40
  • 1 box cake mix (your choice of flavor + required ingredients)
  • ½ cup cake frosting
  • 1 (16 oz) package Vanilla CandiQuik
  • 4 oz Chocolate CandiQuik (for piping)
  • Orange food coloring (oil or powder based only)
  1. Bake cake according to directions on the package. Let cool. Trim off the edges of the cake.
  2. Crumble cake into a large bowl. Add frosting and mix thoroughly with hands.
  3. Roll into ~1" balls. Chill cake balls in the fridge.
  4. Melt CandiQuik according to the package directions. Add orange (oil or powder based) food coloring and stir until desired color is established.
  5. Dip cake balls in orange-colored CandiQuik and place on wax paper to set.
  6. Once set, pipe on basketball stripes using the Chocolate CandiQuik.
TIP: I began by piping on a cross, then added the 2 arced/curved lines for the basketballs. You can do this without picking up the cake ball - just make sure there is wax paper underneath.
