Do you love all the melons that come out in the summer? I mean, I love watermelon as much as the next person, but cantaloupe is one of my favorites too. Why is it always left out of the treat fun? Google "watermelon treats," and you'll find a million recipe ideas at your fingertips, but there are far fewer for cantaloupe. So to change that, I bring you cantaloupe cake bites.
They look and taste like cantaloupe too. Well, as much as they can, since cantaloupe has such a subtle flavor. These do use fresh cantaloupe, which are cooked down to intensify the flavor.
The cantaloupe reduction is added to the cake batter to flavor the bites. Use the baked cake to make the cake bites (crumble up the cake, adding a little frosting to allow you to roll them into balls). Then they are dipped in light green melting candy wafers (to look like the green part of the cantaloupe rind).
Then they are dipped again in light peach-tinted melting candy wafers for the outside.
See? Cantaloupe can be fun too.
