Creme de Menthe Chocolate Cake Balls-for the adults!
When life messes with your cake creation make cake balls! That’s the story behind these delicious balls of Cream de Menthe Buttercream frosting and chocolate cake.
My sweet friend Dorothy at Crazy for Crust, is known for her cake rolls. Every single one is perfection. She’s so good at it, that’s she’s got a tutorial to show the rest of us how easy it really is. Her directions are perfect.
My problem was user error. I wanted to be lazy. I knew my first attempt probably wouldn’t turn out. I just wanted to make it on a whim. You know, run into the kitchen, bake it up and whalaa! The perfect roll cake the very first time.
Not! Dorothy’s directions we’re perfect. You will see a cake roll from me soon. Very soon. But not this recipe. You can’t use a box cake mix to make a cake roll. It’s too much cake. Too thick, to roll nicely.
I ended up with a broken (in many places) delicious, sloppy cake roll. No problem. The cake and buttercream frosting make the best cake balls! We devoured them, including the kids. And don’t worry about the booze and kids, if you do the math, it’s about 1/4 a teaspoon of alcohol per cake ball.
