Drizzle Frosting with a Fork!

You don't need fancy equipment to decorate these cute little bites! Just a fork!

Remember these tasty little Faux Petits Four?


 I revamped them for Fall!

 And the only decorating tool you'll need is a fork :-).

Yield: 20 to 22 Cake Bites

  • Sara Lee Frozen Pound Cake (16 oz)
  • Wilton Candy Melts in White, Orange and Black
  • Coconut Oil
  • Big Knife
  • Cutting Board
  • Bowls (3)
  • Spoons (3)
  • Forks (2)
  • Cooling Rack
  • Newspaper or wax paper
  • Small Cupcake Wrappers (optional)

Prepare your counter by layering newspaper or wax paper under a wire cooling rack.

Cut the cake into 10 or 11 slices. Trim all of the brown crusts away. Save the crusts for cake pops!

Put the cake cubes in the freezer.

Place the entire package of White Candy Melts in a microwave-safe bowl. Add one TB Coconut Oil.

Coconut Oil is solid at room temp but warms easily. It is magical and wonderful stuff. Perfect for this project.

Microwave the melts for 1 minute. Stir. Heat for 1 more minute.

Remove the cake cubes from the freezer. Dip them, one by one, into the melts. 

Use a slight cork-screw motion as you dip them in and take them out.

Place each cake square on the cooling rack.

Let the candy set. When the coating is hard, melt 1/3 package of orange candy melts with a teaspoon of coconut oil.

Hold the bowl over the cakes. Dip the end of a fork into the melts. Rapidly wave the fork all over a cake. You will need to re-dip and re-wave the fork repeatedly. Decorate the rest of the squares.

Let the Orange melts cool and solidify.

Repeat with black melts on all OR half of the cake squares.

Let cool until set. 

Refrigerate for up to three days in a sealed container. 

They can be stacked!

Place each square in a little cupcake wrapper right before serving. 

Do not put the cakes in wrappers before refrigeration. 

The wrappers get soggy if they are left in the refrigerator too long. I found this out the hard way ...
