I made these cake balls for a good friend whose grandfather had passed away.
To make the basic cake balls I followed Bakerella's instructions. You can find them here.
I used a #3 round tip to pipe pink candy melts onto parchment paper in heart shapes. I filled a few of them in, but most were just the outline. I let them harden and set so they were ready when I started dipping the cake balls.
Ready to dip!
Right after dipping the cake ball I placed a pink heart on top. If it starts to slide a little just hold it in place for a second. Have your decorations ready and be quick so you get them placed before the chocolate hardens; it looks nicer that way. If you don't get it on in time though you can dot a little chocolate on top the cake ball and attach it that way.
Here are a few extras that I decorated differently.
For the cake balls in the picture above I had to hold the hearts in place until the chocolate hardened enough to hold them upright on their own.
