Hi LaurenConrad.com readers! It’s Claire Thomas here from The Kitchy Kitchen! If you made a flag cake but have a bunch left overs, then this is the perfect recipe for you and your party guests. I love cake truffles because they represent the perfect cake to frosting ratio, and I lie to myself that I can show more self-control by having “just one.” It usually turns into a slow erosion where I pick off one truffle every time I walk past the kitchen. Rather quickly the platter dwindles down to nothing but a few moist crumbs. But regardless, these cake truffles are so easy to put together, especially when you’re already making a flag cake. Happy Fourth!
4th of July Flag Cake Truffles
- 3 cups white cake crumbs
- ¼ cup red velvet cake crumbs
- 3 tablespoons blue cake crumbs (just white cake baked with blue food coloring in it)
- 1 tablespoon clear crystal sprinkles
- 2-3 tablespoons vanilla buttercream
- 3 ounces white chocolate, melted
1. Mix together the crumbs in one large bowl. Combine the cake crumbs and vanilla buttercream in a medium sized bowl and toss with your hands until moist enough to knead into a ball. If it is not moist enough to do so, add up to 2 tablespoons more vanilla buttercream and knead it in.
2. Using a small ice cream scoop, portion out two dozen balls, each about two tablespoons. Roll each one between the palms of your hands to shape and smooth them into a round spheres.
3. Dip a ball into the melted white chocolate, lifting up with a fork. Let the excess white chocolate drip off.
4. Put 3 or 4 chocolate-covered balls at a time into the bowl of remaining cake crumbs and sprinkles. Immediately toss them with the crumbs to coat before the chocolate shell sets. Refrigerate for at least 5 minutes to fully set the chocolate shells before eating or storing in an airtight container. The truffles will keep for up to 1 week in the fridge.
I promise you that these truffles are just as delicious as they are adorable! You’ll definitely be coming back for seconds…
