My son's band was having a cake ball sale; so I made these music themed cake balls to donate to it.
I used black candy melts to pipe the music notes out on to parchment paper. I let them harden and they were ready when I needed them to decorate the cake balls.
To make the basic cake balls I followed Bakerella's instructions. You can find them here.
Right after dipping the cake balls I sprinkled some yellow sanding sugar sprinkles on top, and then placed a music note on top standing straight up. You have to be ready and work quickly so the chocolate doesn't harden before you get everything on it. I had to hold the music note in place until the chocolate hardened enough to hold it upright on its own (a couple ended up a little crooked :/). I had to be careful when handling the music notes as the stems were a bit fragile. I had a couple snap, but thankfully I was able to repair them or replace them with extras I had made.
I thought the cake balls turned out very nicely, and the bake sale was a success! Yay! :)
