Australia day cake balls

Oh Australia day, for I do not understand why we celebrate thee. Well I did some baking at least for the occasion. Yummy yummy cake balls in Aussi colours. They taste devine. I'm not a cake person, but these are so good, and the best part is that I can eat one cake ball and that's plenty for me.

Here's how you make them:

Bake a normal cake. Add food colour in the dough before you bake it. After the cake is baked and cooled, tear it in little crumbs. Make cream cheese frosting and mix it with the crumbs. I added some food colour in the frosting too. Then just rall them into balls, and dip the balls into melted chocolate. So easy!

Recipe for the cake:

1/4 cup corn flour
1/4 cup plain flour
1/4 cup self-raising flour
3 eggs (room temperature)
1/2 cup sugar

Sift the flours together three times. Beat the egg and sugar with electric mixer until the mixture is thick and pale. Sift the flours in slowly while simultaneously folding in with a large metal spoon until just combined. Place in a cake tin that has baking paper at the bottom, and cook in the oven (180C) for abbout 20 minutes.

Recipe for the frosting:

120g cream cheese
60 g butter
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 1/2 cup icing sugar

Place cheese, butter and vanilla in a bowl. Using an electric mixer, beat until pale. Gradually add icing sugar mixture, beating until combined.

It really is the frosting that makes it so nice and tasty. I see so many different opportunities with these, for so many different occasions.
But here's to Australia day, greetings to all from down under!
