How to Dip Cake Balls? - Page 2

post #16 of 63
So I'm super curious about all of this cake ball talk. It sounds like a fantastic idea..I'm just not quite sure if I understand exactly what you do. I thought I did until this talk of blenders and mixin. I know you dip them in chocolate, and they are from scraps of cake but other than that..I'm confused icon_confused.gif

Thank you for your help!! icon_lol.gif

Thanks auntsushi for the idea of how not to use a mixer. It seemed a bit odd to me, too, but that's what the recipe on cakecentral says. I'll try to just handcrumble the cake and hope for the best! Can you use one cake batter, but then separate the scraps with different flavors of liquor or creme to make different tasting cake balls?

Old school bakeries use to call them RUM BALLS. Simple was is to throw your cake scraps into your mixer, a little liquid ( extract, liqour ) a little frosting. Roll, and you can dip into cocoa powder or dip into melted chocolate.

and before they set you can make them pretty by using the holiday sprinkles!

This is the easiest way to make them.

Sorry to leave ya hanging on the grid mark question. Had to put the little one to bed. AHHHHWWW another hour until DH comes home-- The silence in the house is WONDERFUL!!!

Never bothered to much by any grid marks on the bottom. I set them in little paper cups when done so you never see the bottom anyway.

Hey what if you left the cake balls on the toothpicks and then stuck to tooth pick into a pice of styrofoam(sp). Then when the choco is set pull out the toothpick, Im guessing the little hole would be visable but less than grid markings. Im thinking of making some eyeball cake balls for Halloween.

What if you put a piece of wax paper over the cooling grid, then poke the toothpick through the wax paper and the grid together? That way, you can pull out the toothpick easily and also not have any grid marks...hmm....

I know, styrofoam paper plates, they could handle the weight better!

Wow, famousamous, you took some time to do that!! good idea.

another question for everybody: How long in advance can you make cake balls and how do you store them if making in advance?

thanks!

I haven't tried cake balls yet, but have been reading through some threads when I came across your comments.... Rum balls!!! That brings back so many childhood memories! My aunt used to make them for my dad all the time. I got her recipe before she passed...here I thought it was some old Pennsylvania Dutch thing she came up with. So, I guess I HAVE made cake balls after all, but with crushed nilla wafers. MMMM!!!! Thanks for the memories "Risque"!!!

what am I doing wrong icon_sad.gif SOmeone please help! I am dying to try these wonderful treats but I have made them twice and Yuck! Mine have no flavor. I used white cake (just the amt. you get from cutting the dome off 2 8 inch pans) a little icing, a little van/car creamer and a little chocolate powder. They just don't taste like anything, I am getting SO frustrated icon_cry.gif

Just today tried making cake balls for the first time.... icon_sad.gif

I must admit, I am so disappointed. icon_cry.gif I couldn't WAIT to try these...I was even dreaming of them while I was sleeping! I used chocolate cake crumbles with some choc bc icing mixed in...and a dash of caramel vanilla coffee mate (dry) and mixed it together and rolled into balls.

How in the H@*# tapedshut.gif do you dip these suckers???!!! Mine was crumbling in the melted chocolate and I could hardly get them out in one piece! icon_cry.gif

I am SO bummed...I was so looking forward to doing these and now I just feel like I wasted my morning!
