I am glad you chose to visit! My blog is a compilation of the many hats I find myself wearing. On any given day I may be an encourager, an instructor, or just a lady who is venting. You, dear reader, will probably identify with my triumphs and my tribulations! These snapshots fit into my Life Scrapbook I have named A. McInnis Artworks. I hope you will find something worth your while.

Cakeballs Revisited

As I was pontificating on the negatives of cakeballs yesterday, I ran into a friend who enjoys entertaining and decorating as much as I do. "Oh, I've found something you must NOT try!" I implored. "They are called cakeballs...oh, hahahaha, they are just awful...blah, blah, blah!" She exclaimed, "No! I love them! I made them this fall and at Christmas and they were wonderful!"

"Surely you jest," I retorted.

And here is why hers were wonderful and mine were not...she used cream cheese instead of icing to hold the concoction together! When the balls were dipped into the white chocolate, she had a nice melding of flavors instead of the overpowering sweetness I encountered. She used a pumpkin cake mix with the cream cheese mixed in and dipped in white chocolate and red velvet cake with the same cream cheese introduced and then dipped. Well, duh!! That makes sense.

So before we all summarily dismiss these maligned little treats, I will try them again and report back to you! It's the least I can do after almost ruining their collective reputations on the blog.

I'm not afraid to say I MAY have made a mistake,
