Red Velvet Cake Balls

This is such a common recipe among fellow food bloggers these days. I had some leftover Red Velvet Cake that my friend Jen brought us a few days ago and made these Red Velvet Cake Balls to use it up and share.

The recipe for this is rather easy and can be easily found on a slew of other blogs in greater detail, but I thought it would be interesting to provide a link to a New York Times article that outlines the popularity, legends and the history of Red Velvet Cake.

  2. A cool way to deal with leftover cake. Too bad we never have any!

  3. you finally made them. Once you make them, you can't go back. Yours look beautiful. I made one of your sugar cookie recipes that Kelly loved. It's a keeper here.

  4. If we ever have cake leftover, I will definitely make these.

  7. Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up.

    The text in your post seem to be running off the screen in Ie.
    I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to let you know.
    The design and style look great though! Hope you get the issue solved soon.
