What on earth are Cake Balls?

Cake Balls sound odd don’t they. I had no idea what they were.

Oh my goodness me these were delicious and I have to admit I ate nearly all of them to myself.   I have a very beautiful and very slim neighbour who I did let have one. She declared it gotrgeous after mmmm ing a lot then sid  ‘Oh, it’s just the perfect size isn’t it…a slice of cake can be so intimidating’   I have to admit I have never, ever, in my life found a slice of cake too big or in the slightest way intimidating. This probably explains our different waist sizes!

Cake balls are lovely; a gorgeous gift idea, pretty as a picture and the perfect little cake to go with a coffee….oh and they travel so well!

Amy Lane if you haven’t yet come across her before is a mummy blogger at Cooking , Cakes and Children  and has just published a fabulous new book The Baking Pocket Bible which I am eagerly awaiting lelivery of.

The Baking Pocket Bible: Every Baking Rule of Thumb at Your Fingertips (Pocket Bibles)

It sounds great, listen to this from the  product description:

This beautiful hardback gift book will be your go-to friend in the kitchen and helpful guide when out shopping for ingredients. Packed full of history on the origin of baking treats and traditions, The Baking Pocket Bible also contains a wealth of great recipes for experienced bakers and practical know-how for those new to baking.

If Amy writes as well as she makes Cake Balls this book will be a winner!
