A Valentine’s Day Gift Box of…

Red Velvet Cake Balls

Cake… Yes, cake.

The truffles…

Red Velvet Cake Ball Cake

The box…all cake!

Don’t believe me? Well keep reading and I’ll show you how to make this little Sweet Heart Cake.

Red Velvet Cake Balls

Cake Box Cake 1

  • First, you’ll need to grease and flour at least one heart-shaped cake pan. I used one that’s about 8″ wide and used a round cake pan for the rest of the batter.
  • Now, mix your ingredients and pour in the pans. (The Red Velvet Cake recipe I used made a cake that was really too greasy, so I’m not going to post it. But you can just as easily use any cake recipe or cake mix for this.)
  • Bake the cakes and let cool.
  • When cool, take a pencil and trace the shape of your cake onto wax paper.

Cake Box Cake 2

  • After you’ve outlined your cake, draw a second outline about .25 inch around the outside of the first heart shape. You can eyeball it.
  • Go back to your cake or cakes and level them by cutting off the tops with a long serrated knife.
  • Keep the excess. You can use it later.
  • Okay, now you’ll need some red fondant. You can tint fondant red yourself or take the easy way and buy it already colored. (It’s a real pain to tint fondant red and get the color you want, so I’m buying this stuff anytime I can help it.)

Cake Box Cake 3

  • Work on a clean dry surface and sprinkle a little cornstarch before you begin working with the fondant. If you don’t, it will start to stick to the surface. Work with just the amount you need and keep all the rest wrapped up tightly with plastic wrap. It dries out quickly.
  • Now use a rolling pin or fondant roller and roll it flat. You’ll need to roll it larger than your heart shape template.
  • With scissors, cut the wax paper along the outer edge of your heart shape to make the template. Then, gently hold the template in place on your fondant and use a toothpick to trace the heart shape.
  • Remove the wax paper and carefully cut out the shape with a knife. Use the toothpick marks as your guide.

Cake Box Cake 4

  • This piece of fondant is going to be the bottom of your cake box. Lay it on a plate, cake board or cake stand. I used a round cake board and a few doilies to place the fondant on. Now use a little of your frosting to coat a layer on the inner section of your fondant heart shape.
  • Place the cake on the fondant and center it. The frosting helps hold it in place.
  • Now, frost the top and smooth it out.
  • Go back to your wax paper template and cut out the inside heart shape. Use this new template for the top of the cake box. Roll and cut out another piece of fondant to use to cut out the heart for the top of the cake the same way you did for the bottom.

Cake Box Cake 5

  • Place the fondant heart shape on top of the cake so that it’s centered with the bottom layer of fondant. Frost the sides carefully. Make it as smooth as possible. Use a paper towel and gently remove any excess frosting that may get on the bottom edge or the top of the cake.
  • Now roll out a long strip of fondant.
  • Using a straight edge, cut the sides off so you have a long even piece of fondant. You’ll want the width of this piece be at least .25″ wider than the height of your cake so that it forms the sides of the box to hold the truffles.
  • Carefully, wrap the sides of the cake with this strip of fondant. Again, the frosting will help hold the fondant in place. The smoother your frosting is, the smoother the sides of your box will be.

    And, voila… Sweet Heart Candy Cake Box!

Now, you just need to fill it with truffles.

You can use the other cake and excess trimmings to crumble and make red velvet cake balls.
Read the original how-to for the Red Velvet Cake Balls.
(Keep in mind that this recipe used the entire cake for cake balls, so you will want to cut down on the amount of frosting you use to make them work. Start small and add more as you need it until the consistency is moist enough to mold and still hold it’s shape. )

Box of Cake

I just decorated these different ways with candy writers, heart sprinkles, nuts and drizzled candy melts. You can take this a step further by really making it an assorted box of chocolate. Go all out and make the cake balls with different cake flavors.

Kaci said...

Can you give some advice to a novice as to how to get the truffles so smooth? I’ve tried the cake balls before, using white chocolate bark but they just do not turn out as pretty as yours do!

Does anyone know where I can find white chocolate bark for the cake balls? The nearest store to me is walmart, but when I checked their online site, they don’t seem to have any. And for the cream cheese frosting, am I suppose to use the entire can? I’m planning to use the Betty Crocker one.

Kaci – Read the comments in the Red Velvet Cake post from December 07. There should be some tips.

Anonymous – Hobby Lobby and Michael’s have white candy melts. Kroger has white candy coating or bark.

Toni – Fantastic job and the kids look like they had soooo much fun!

oh Bakerella! I am newly addicted to your website. I saw your Valentine box of chocolates and I just had to give it a try. It was my first try with fondant (I made the marshmallow kind and tinted it pink, my arms got too tired to go all the way to red!) And this was my first try at making the cake balls that you are famous for. yum! Both gave me a chance to flex my novice cake decorating skills. And surprisingly the project was pretty forgiving. Thank you so much for the inspiration. I am just pleased as punch with they way it came out! Happy Valentines.

rhiannon said...

I tried my hand at this cake over the past two days. My cake doesn’t look as polished as yours, but I’m okay with it.

I discovered a couple of things… first, if you’re going to use chocolate chips, use Ghirardelli. It melted really liquidy and smooth. Nestle, for instance, was just way too thick.

Also, since the melted chocolate was so liquid, I used my egg separator to dip the chocolate. Just picture the excess chocolate as egg white, it pours right off.

Here is my attempt: http://rhiyaya.wordpress.com/2009/02/12/heart-shaped-box/

DivineDiva said...

This is a way cute idea. I tried making the cake balls (first time)but i used a strawberry cake and Cherry frosting. The store bought frosting is a little to sweet for me. I also tried the heart shape rather than just the balls. How do you get your chocolate to coat so smoothly especially on the shapes. Mine don’t look anywhere near as smooth as yours. I enjoy your blog very much.

rhiannon – thanks for the tips.

DivineDiva – I think it has a something to do with the Kroger brand candy coating. I have the best results with it.

I got lots of compliments on the cake balls, both on the looks and the taste. :) Thanks for posting the step-by-step instructions! Where do you find red fondant by the way? I could only find white or a package with a variety of colors. Thanks again, and happy Valentine’s Day!

Bakerella, you’re awesome! My 7 year old daughter and I made one of these last night as a special Valentine’s activity, and while it doesn’t exactly look like your picture because I’ve never decorated a cake in my life and my assistant is 7, it was huge fun to make and my daughter is so proud of making a cake that has turned out “looking like a grown up made it”.

At the last minute on Friday, I decided to attempt this. I have never used fondant before and my local craft store had only a tiny package of red fondant. So I used white for the most of it and accented with red. I used my chocolate crazy cake recipe. Instead of making cake balls at 1:00 a.m. (as the universe swung into the Age of Aquarius, btw!) I rolled up dark chocolate truffles to fill the candy cups. The man is thrilled!!

Robin said...

I made this as my first attempt at cake decorating. I made it for my mom who has Celiacs disease so I had to make it gluten-free. Overall it was a success. I had to make my own fondant, the pre-made kind doesn’t list allergens, which I had never done before… nor had I ever used fondant before so I did’t really know what consistancy it should have. But she absolutely loved it! So thank you for helping make her day truly special.

Alice Enevoldsen said...

I made one – and I had to modify a lot since we're very allergic to chocolate, milk, eggs, and butter. My version (not as pretty as yours, but if you applied your skill I'm sure it would be) is allergy safe for nut-, peanut-, milk-, egg-, soy-, bean-, and coconut-allergic people. The only major allergen in it is wheat (and if you're diabetic it has a LOT of sugar in it).

My cake: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=30326632&l=90b3a&id=1309659676

And yes – I'll bet Cake Wrecks would have a field day with it, but I'm still quite proud of my first experimentation with rolled fondant.

You are so talented! I have enjoyed looking at your beautiful creations. I recently had cake balls for the first time and was floored at how yummy they are! Then I discovered your site and see that they really are quite the phenomenon! I made some Peanut Butter Dipped Chocolate Cake Balls (my creation) for this Valentine’s Day with chocolate cake mix, but I made my own cream cheese frosting using 2 8oz. blocks beat with 1 cup powdered sugar (I find the canned frosting has too much “filler” in it), but then, I dipped them into melted Reeses’s chips (I also added a few milk chocolate chips and Crisco to make it more runny). They turned out very well! I thought you’d be interested in the combo after seeing some of your other recipes.

i know i know. everyone is all "look at mine!"
but i am too!

thanks so much for the directions!

i was terrified when i decided i was going to make it bc everyone said that fondant is super difficult to work with, but come to my surprise it was so much fun and it turned out…well nearly perfect! again thanks so much my boyfriend and family loved it! they said it was delicious.

i did change a bit since i couldn't find a large tub of red fondant, i used 2 little packs of red and white for the bottom of the "box"(under the chocolates), and it worked out great. i also used yellow cake and chocolate icing for the "glue". again. thank so much!!!

consider me a fan!<3

okay – i need to know how you got your cake balls to actually look like candy chocolates for this cake? are you using a candy mold? i’m very intrigued to find out and am anxious to try it out myself.

Blogger Kristin – thanks

Adam & Lisa – where's mine?

Sonia D. – Hi fan. Glad you took the plunge. Fondant seems much less scary now.

Carol – look on amazon. They might have it. Sprinkles cupcakes also sells a red velvet cupcake mix

Mindy Volkert – no molds on these. Just shaped by hand

Anonymous – It should go for big bucks

I made the Red Velvet balls this week. They turned out a little big, and my dipping technique left a lot to be desired. They were delicious. I had to pass on the recipe. Thank you.

I’ve made your cupcake pops multiple times and got the itch to make some heart bites for february. I was feeling so proud of my creation posted here http://clarkcontinuum.blogspot.com/2009/02/i-heart-you.html until I saw your delicious treats you made for V-day. Yours look AMAZING of course and was such a better idea! I am going to try that next year. Thanks for always posting such fun ideas.

Since the instant I saw this I’ve been in awe over it and, well, since I’ve been drooling over this for such a long time, I figure it’s about time I go ahead and try it.

I’m a bit worried since I have to make it gluten free (and gluten free things have a tendency to misbehave…), but I’m hoping that everything will turn out alright.

I’ll be getting the ingredients tomorrow. Wish me luck! ;)
