Red Velvet Cake Balls
-set of 3 spatulas
-heat resistant spatula
So, start by combining the cake mix, eggs and oil. Stir until well combined, my mixer came in very handy. Don't you love the bright red color? Next, Pour it into your demarle mold, I used my twist mold. Really any mold will do (large round, bundt you name it!)
Follow the directions on your baking mix for temperature and time. When all is said and done, let the cake cook and effortlessly remove from the mold. You can see below how easily the cake is removed! Demarle bakeware require no greasing or spray prior to baking, ever.
After you have ooed and awed at how beautiful your cake design is crumble it up into a bowl, see below. Add the frosting and mix until combined.
Next step is to roll the cake/frosting mixture into balls, any size you would like. The ones I made were maybe the size of a golfball.
Place them onto your silpat on a baking sheet or a baking sheet covered in parchment paper. Place it in the freezer for at least an hour to harden. This makes your next step a lot easier!
The next step is to melt your chocolate so you can dip and cover the cake, then roll in your choice of almonds, sprinkles, peanuts or whatever your heart desires! Cool on the same silpat/baking sheet you used before. These can be stored in the refrigerator or freezer. Below if my finished product:

The mini-cupcakes were also made from another boxed cake mix. I used my mini-muffin tray and perforated baking sheet. I used a piping bag for the frosting design.

Cheesecake this recipe came from the Demarle "Families Cooking Across America" cookbook. Let me know if you need the recipe! Demarle products used: Flower cooling rack, magnetic measuring cups, spatula, mixing bowl, large round mold and perforated baking sheet.
The measuring cups came in very handy not only for measuring out ingredients but also for crushing the Grahams for my crust.
|The cheesecake really does not even stick to the Demarle non-stick mold.|
|So easy to remove, just like your old springform pan!|
