Fuzzy Valentines Cake Balls

Happy Valentine's Day!!!  Here's the adorably cute, pain-in-the-neck cake balls I made for Sophie's class party.  While they took a little extra effort than regular cake balls, these little cuties were worth the extra time.  Enjoy :)

FUZZY CAKE BALLS
1 cake baked
1 can frosting (I only use about 3/4 can)
1 package white candy coating
4 cups tinted coconut (I tinted each cup with 3-5 drops of red food color)
candy eyes (I made my own with candy coating)
heart sprinkles (for antenna)

Mush up the baked cake and mix in frosting (I use my hands).  Roll into 1 inch balls and place on a cookie sheet.  Place in freezer for at least 30 minutes.  Melt candy coating.  Dip cake balls into white candy coating and place in coconut to cover.  Let harden on parchment paper.  Make antenna and feet with candy coating. Use a small amount of candy coating to attach feet, antenna and eyes to the coconut covered cake ball.

How cute are those!?! Do you use a mold to make the feet?
