mom2csc,

Do you have an electric or gas oven?

electric

definitely not wet when rolled in the powdered sugar.

i'll have to try flattening them, thanks for the tip.

its great that they are the rage. I get right at 8 dozen from a box of cake mix using the extender recipe. Great profit margin in these little darlings icon_biggrin.gif

Ok, I've never made them, so let me get this straight.

You make them according to the recipe, but instead of dipping them in the chocolate, you bake them. Do you then also skip the freezing part?

yes, make as usual then bake instead of freezing. then you can dip in chocolate or roll in powdered sugar. The first batch I made came from the freezer. I make and freeze until I need. I defrosted mine before I baked them, not sure if you have to. I haven't dipped the baked ones yet, just didn't need to but I will tomorrow.

I will try some presses like cookies tomorrow also. icon_biggrin.gif

Has anyone tried dipping the baked cake balls in chocolate yet? Just wondering how they hold up.

I made cake balls once and didn't like them--hated them actually. I (vaguely) remembered reading a thread about baking them. Well, I baked mine too long (at too high a temp probably) and they flattened out into cookies--those I liked. These were red velvet; I sandwiched them with the cream cheese frosting--very yummy! I call them my "elseesee" cookies--Leftover Cake Cookies--lol. I also did this with chocolate cake and they came out very good.

I make cake balls and they're delicious! I take my left over cake, crumble it up, add enough buttercream icing to hold it together, then I take a mellon baller and scoop it up, roll them in a tighter ball, freeze then, then dip in melted chocolates. Wonderful!!! I've also used white chocolate gauache instead of icing and those were delicious also. Time consuming but well worth it!!! icon_biggrin.gif

Okay now I have a question (well a couple actually), first, do you use a binder in the baked cake balls? Some people don't use any binder because the cake is so moist to begin with. Second, do you dip these in chocolate after they're baked?

I can't wait to try this tomorrow! I tend to think the reg. cake balls are kind of mushy too...not a real fan of that texture. Thanks for the tip! thumbs_up.gif
