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!

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 :)

I’m from Philippines & a great fan of yours. I love every idea, tips & everything that you shared. I’m new in baking (I only baked cakes for my relatives & friends)but by applying every thing that I’ve learned from you including recipes…gosh!..they think I’m expert! I made a cupcake tower for my 7yr.old daughter & they loved it. Thanks for your generosity. God Bless!

I would love to try the candy melts thing but I dont know what I did wrong when I tried because I could not get it any liquid and that was with Wiltons.

I usually use candy melts but I want to try the poured fondant – do you dip it the same or pour it over the cake balls? I’ve never used the poured fondant before.
Thanks you.

Is that right?

My only idea is either to add some lemon flavour/lemon zest or use “real” chocolate instead of candy melts. I have not tried candy melts so I dont know how they taste.

Love your cake bites…way too cute. I tried making some last night…and covered them in melted chocolate (wilton chocolate melts) and found that they were VERY sweet. I used a red velvet cake mix and mixed it with a tub of cream cheese frosting… it was good…but very sweet.. any idea of what I can do to bring the sweetness down a bit? Thanks!

Try use some sugar syrup on your hands and roll the bites so they get sticky and then roll them in the sprinkles.

But how did you get the sprinkles over the whole ball. I could only get mine on the top. Did you roll them in the sprinkles. I thought of doing that but thought it would get chocolate over the colour of the sprinkles. thank again for great website!

I’ve been wanting to try these for a while now, ’cause they really look charming.

I’m new to your website and I enjoy your pictures and tips very much. You are quite an artist. I would like to address Marielba from Venezuela. I am from Puerto Rico and I’m wondering if you wouldn’t mind sharing your recipe for trupas?

When you pipe your leaves pay attention to first pipe with pressure to make the “heart” then loosen up and softly pull back. That should ive you the pointed tip with out it breaking off.

Try one day only to pipe leaves on a piece of parchment paper. It is a good learner:-)

You always have such beautiful creations! I hate it! It makes me so jealous because all of your things look absolutely perfect! I’m so jealous! Is that buttercream or royal icing that you decorated the leaves with? Because whenever I use either of them, my leaves never have that beautiful solid point that you get with your leaves.. They always break off towards the end so I’m stuck with this odd looking leaf that looks half eaten by bugs!

melissa: In the link from MS.com they use non-pareils, but I have also tried it with sprinkles/jimmies and sugar crystals it works just as good. As long as you use clear or white ones. I think yhis is so cool because it gives you a chance to co-ordinate with the design/color you are using.

I just had one question…i went and checked out that recipe for the sprinkles and i couldnt tell what kind of sprinkles they were using…Jimmies or non-pareils. I know yours looks like non-pareils, but i wasnt sure if this recipe works with both kinds of sprinkles or not. Either way, i cant wait to try some! You’ve inspired me! Soo pretty!!

Sarah S: Do try to make them with buttercream they taste so good. I used some vanilla sugar syrup as well and that made them really moist.
Have you tried candy melts? if you want to use “real” chocolate then temper it. Try and see this little video I found online: http://video.about.com/candy/How-to-Temper-Chocolate.htm

DivaLicious Cakes: I will look forward to see your cake stand….

Linda: Thank you:D I wonder what you will make next….

Hendria, Amanda, Amy, Holly, Suzanne: thank you all for the lovely comments.

Angela: Hmm no I am sorry I dont have an excact recipe for these. But I would say that if you use a 6″ cake and about 1/2 cup of buttercream (maybe more-maybe less) would give you around 25-30 cake bites depending on the size.

Kathleen: You can find the recipe for poured fondant icing here: http://www.cakejournal.com/?p=59

Yolanda: Thank you. I use most of my recipes from the cake books that I have or I often Google for one.

My Sweet & Saucy & marielba: I am glad that you liked them:-)

Landa: I used this great tip that I found on MS.com: http://www.cakejournal.com/?p=53

You are so good doing all this beauty. I make something called trufas in Venezuela, made with cake scraps mixed with condensed milk, some liqueur and rolled into small bite sizes, decorated with chocolate sprinkles, peanuts, almond or sugar. Placed in paper cups.
I so happy when I see your notes in my mail. I can´t wait to see what´s new. Greetings, Marielba Anzola
