Just wondering…do you live in or near the Twin Cities? If so… you will see THESE Eyeball Cake balls featured on TELEVISION fairly soon.

To be more specific, I will be making these on tv very soon.

As in today (October 19th) at 3 p.m. CST!

Along with John and Elizabeth from Twin Cities Live

Slightly nervous?

It’s just live t.v. afterall…

Until I slip, fall and spill Candiquik everywhere, or say something that sounds completely idiotic.

You think about these things when you’re going to be on tv.

I do anyway.

So in the case that I run off the set before these get made… I thought I would share them here first, Eyeball Cake Balls!

Just kidding. I’m completely confident that everything will go smoothly. Kinda. Sorta. I hope.

Wish me luck & I’ll be posting the link to the Twin Cities Live episode soon so you can all see!

UPDATE: Here is the Twin Cities Live Episode of us making these Eyeball Cake Balls:

    Those are so fun! I’m sure you’ll do great, I wish I could see it. My husband and I do local tv programs for the cable co, and the times ppl mess up are the most fun/interesting. So I don’t think you need to be concerned about that. It makes it “real” and enjoyable! Have fun and enjoy yourself! Best wishes!

      Hi Sharon, I drop each cake ball directly in the tray of CandiQuik, then using a spoon, I pour the coating over the cake ball and then carefully scoop the cake ball out (let the excess coating drip off) and place on wax paper. Hope this clears it up – much easier than cake pops ;)
