Cake bites

Cake bites

I had some cake scraps from the wedding cake so I decided to make some pretty cake bites to indulge with my afternoon tea. Cake bites is made out of cake scraps (I used chocolate cake) and is mixed with either buttercream, cream cheese frosting or chocolate ganache until it looks likes a sticky “dough” that you can mould. You can add flavours like sugar syrup or liqueur if you like.

Roll the “dough” into small bite sizes and chill them in the refrigerator for about 1 hour. Then decorate them as you desire with melted chocolate, poured fondant or sprinkles. If you are planning to roll the cake bites in sugar sprinkles, then do it the moment that you have rolled the cake bites while they are still soft and sticky. Otherwise it can be hard for the sugar sprinkles to attach the cake bite.

I decorated some of my cake bites with “home-colored” pink sprinkles and covered the rest with poured fondant and decorated them with green vines and some small pink gum paste sugar flowers. Placed in paper cups these small cake bites would be a perfect treat for a tea party.

Happy Caking!

    Hi Louise. I had the idea of cutting out marzipan cookie shapes then covering them with chocolate. My worry was how to cover them totally without a dent or two being seen….but of course sugar strands will cover any imperfections! Yippee, thanks and Merry Christmas!

    These are gorgeous and they will be a perfect accent dessert for my daughter’s 4th birthday party! We are doing a pastel Mad Hatter design decorated with pink and blue snowflakes for birthday cake (December baby!) and these will be great to serve alongside! I came upon your site purely by chance and I am so glad I did :)
