Jubilee Cake Truffles


I had some leftover cake from making my hamburger cupcakes so I decided to make cake truffles again ... Jubilee style! I ended up making 2 batches of cake for my hamburger cupcakes - the first batch without cases to give the proper 'hamburger' look but even though I greased the tin with cake release spray, they refused to come out whole so I made a second batch with cases which was used.

All is not lost as I have learnt from previous experience that all you need is a tub of Cadbury Philadelphia chocolate cream cheese and you have cake truffles! I used red, white and blue candy melts to coat them and sprinkled red, white and blue decorations on top. 

 cake crumbs and chocolate cream cheese 

 mix to get this

 roll into balls 

 dip in candy melts and add sprinkles 

Jubilee Cake Truffles!



These are really quick and simple to make and would be perfect for a Jubilee street party or any party! I am submitting these to the Blogging Baking Jubilee Competition hosted by Homemade by Fleur. The competition runs until 3rd June 2012 and the winner gets £100 of Amazon vouchers, provided by Appliances Online.

    1. I know! I actually bought multi coloured sticks from Cake International and it would have been easier to dip on sticks. Next time :)

    1. LOL that might be all the Jubilee bakes from me. I do hate wasting cake (or food) so I'm pleased they didn't go to waste :)

  8. Lovely jubilee cake truffles! Funnily enough I went on my cake pop course at the weekend and have just posted asking if anyone had tried chocolate phillie in cake pops...and you have provided the answer!! These are a great way to use leftover cake...if such a thing ever exists!! :-)

    1. Thanks. How was your course? You can definitely make cake pops with chocolate philly or normal cream cheese - less hassle than making a buttercream and less sweet as the candy melts are sweet. I only have leftover cake if there's been a baking disaster!
