Chocolate Truffles from Leftover Cake

Su Yin of Journal of a Girl who Loves to Cook just did a post about how to use cake scraps. It sounds delicious. Here's her recipe;

5 cups cake crumbs (preferably chocolate)
1/2 cup cream
100gms dark/bittersweet chocolate (chopped into large chunks)
1 tbsp instant coffee(opt)

"Heat the cream in a microwavable bowl for 60 seconds or more. Throw in the chocolate chunks and stir till you create an even mixture. Pour this into the cake crumbs and mix about to it create a sticky dough-like paste. Refrigerate it till its workable. Mould them into tiny bite sized pieces and coat with coating chocolate/tempered couverture of your choice.
Leave them to dry on a parchment or even skewer them to make pops. It's really up to you.
