Sweet Treats Cookie Tour a Grand ( and goody filled ) time !
And so we gave our famous cake balls. The biggest turn out yet in Eureka for our annual sweet treats tour !  We all had a great time, met some awesome people and ate a lot of sweets and drank our famous hot apple cider !  As promised, here is one of our cake ball recipes and I hope to see all of you again next year or sooner ( you need to stay here !!! )  The beautiful lady in the photo above is my owner Catherine- the greatest friend and employer to me and I am grateful for her !!!!
Randee Ruane CHA

1 baked 9x13" cake
1 to 1 1/2 c. vanilla frosting, canned or make your own
1 (1 lb.) package vanilla candy melts, any color
About 2 T. shortening
Rainbow sprinkles
Larger confetti/disc sprinkles for decorating

1.  Crumble cake (or cupcakes) into a large bowl, working it into small crumbs. Add frosting and mix until well combined. Mix in rainbow sprinkles - I'm not sure how much I used; I just kept pouring them in and stirring until the mixture looked "confetti'ish."

2.  Shape into approximately 1" balls, using about 1 T. of the cake mixture per ball; set aside on wax paper. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 1 hour, or place in freezer for about 15 minutes.

3.  In a small deep bowl, melt candy melts and shortening together in the microwave per candy melt package directions (typically in 30 second intervals, stirring in between).

4.  Use a fork to dip each cake ball in the candy coating, letting excess coating drip off back into the bowl. Place on wax paper. Immediately sprinkle with a few large disc/confetti sprinkles (or additional rainbow sprinkles).

5.  Let stand for coating to set up.

Are they not pretty ?

New Friends of Red Bud Manor !
These 3 couples stayed with us last week. While each had never met the others before their stay, they became great friends during their visit to Eureka Springs ! This is what one aspect of what a bed and breakfast is all about- strangers coming to the breakfast table and leaving as friends !  It happens quite a bit here at Red Bud Manor !  It is always amazing ( and fun ! ) to host new guests as they come together for a great time at our breakfast table !

Why don't you join us ? Book a night or two, or three..and see what you are missing !  Not only will you experience a 5 star modern luxury bed and breakfast with VIP WOW service, but you will make new friends as well!  Where would we be without friends?

Here is to all our friends....happy end of August Everyone !
