Love these! Red, White, and Blue Strawberries: Patriotic Cake Bites!
White chocolate and blue sugar sprinkles. Simple, easy and adorable!
Patriotic Cake Bites
Basic Cake Bite Recipe:
One Cake Mix:
(Any flavor baked in a 9X13 pan
according to package directions and cooled)
Dump the baked cake into a large bowl
and mix in 3/4 of a tub of any flavor frosting
Mix it all up with your hands
(To the consistancy it all sticks together well)
Roll the cake into little truffle sized balls
Refrigerate or freeze until firm
Then dip into any kind of melted chocolate;
You can also make Cake Pops this way;
have you seen this site??
I used a white cake mix and white frosting
then I divided the frosting/cake mixture up
and tinted each one with non-tasting food gel:
1/4 of it red and 3/4 of it blue:
(Remember to refrigerate between each step)
I rolled the red up into small marble size balls
and then flattened out blue cake to a disk in my palm
and wrapped it around the red ball and rolled then both up:
Then I dipped them and added sprinkles....
Here is the table all done up purty....
Even the drink got all festive!
This was done with three different kinds of beverages
(doesn't matter what kind, just that they have to be the color you want;
and have three different sugar contents.
First: you fill your container up all the way with Ice - Ice is a buffer; it helps keep the colors separate.
(This works in individual glasses too)
Then add the drink for the bottom layer (It should contain the MOST sugar)
30 grams of sugar - Pina Colada SoBe in this case,
then add a 15 grams of sugar drink (I used Powerade Fruit Punch) ,
then 0 grams of sugar drink (Powerade Zero Mixed Berry)
We also had Curried Chicken over Rice - (Recipe to come)
And Red White and Blue Jello!
(Some lessons learned on this one so no picture -
I should call it "Epic Fail Jello Mold": or "Earthquake Jello"
my layers tasted awesome but they were in a jello mold....
and each layer slipped off the other ones.... Weird!)
Anyway; every good cook needs a recipe-gone-bad-experience
to make all the good ones seem even more miraculous!
I love to cook, it's how I de-stress; most people don't understand it but they love to taste test! I turn on some great tunes, and get to baking.
