another good liquid to use is the flavored syrups they use for Cappuccino's. there are so many diff. flavors w/these!!! i got a few of them in the coffee isle at walmart and a few i got a specialty store!

freddie - thanks for all of the flavor combo suggestions!! I can't wait to try some of them. The most adventurous I've gotten is chocolate cake bound with bc icing with peppermint extract added, dipped in white candy melts. At Christmas, I sprinkled red and green sugar on top. They were a hit.

Your welcome ps3884, yours sound yummy, I love a taste of mint. I just see what cake crumbs I have around, what leftover icings and fillings and whats in the cupboard to top it up. Fruit syrups also make a great binder with chocolate cake. Basically you just make a combinations of your favorite flavors. The only thing you have to watch is that you don't add to much binder. Aside from that be creative if the flavors are good and go together the Balls will be great !!! Although I call mine Sweet Bites, sounds better than cake balls to me !

Hey Spottydog,
Not sure how much binder you put in, mine are not at all mushy but I just put enough binder for the crumbs to stick together, for 2 cups of crumbs I add 2 or 3 Tablespoons binder just enough so I can scoop them in a melon baller and with a little pressure get them to stick. I don't like them mushy mine are more brownie like in center than soft truffle. They are always popular.

Can't help with the Chocolate as I never had any problem with it hardening, but you can put them in the fridge for a few minutes if need be. It could be also how thick your coating was.

More important how do they taste ???

They tasted great just mushy. I definetly put way too much in if those are the normal porportions. Cake was like cookie dough after I mixed it up. Thankyou for the help. I will try less!! icon_smile.gif

i gotta try these, just wondering if theres an alternative to canned frosting? im in australia and no where sells canned frosting. is it just like buttercream? im not a fan of buttercream.

could they be made with cake crumbs and caramel filling? they sell that in cans here.

ive worked in a bakery where they mixed cake scraps with cocoa powder, coconut, jam and rum esscence, rolled them in coconut and called them rum balls, eeewww!!!!!!!

Can you make these ...the cake and icing mixed...make the balls and just roll them in cocoa powder or confectioner's sugar?
post #42 of 51
Sure you can make them without the chocolate and roll them in cocoa or icing sugar. The combinations too make these are endless. Caramel filling is great too, I have made them with Vanilla Caramel Cake crumbs and caramel filling with a center of chewy caramel and then dipped in chocolate, too yummy ! Basically if they are made with cake crumbs and formed into a ball they are cake balls and whatever combination you use is up to your own imagination and tastebuds !!!

I havent made these yet, but I am gearing up to try as I have a screwed up cake in the freezer. Has anyone tried adding baileys? I thought maybe chocolate cake with a little chocolate buttercream and some baileys might be good. So I shouldnt add too much liquid or BC then?

Instead, I save the scraps and layer them in parfait glasses with various puddings, fillings, and whipped toppings. They'll eat that.[/quote]

That's how we eat scraps too!!!! Sometimes if I have baked ALOT, I'll freeze scraps. Then I have them when I need a throw together SCRAP CAKE. thumbs_up.gif

Thanks Christie for posting that great tutorial. I have an anniversary party coming up for a lge crows so that might be a good idea with the cake.
