Ok, a little off topic, but have you noticed the difference in taste between a seedless raspberry jam and one with the seeds still in it? I always wonder if it is just me but I find that the seedless ones have a bit of a strange taste and they aren't quite as raspberry tasting . Almost a boozey taste?

YEP!! I definately agree with you. The seeded jam tastes more "raspberry" to me, too. I am also with you on using just icing or whatever for the cake balls. I don't particularly care for alcohol in my cake--except Chambord--so I just use icing or jam or whatever.

My favorite so far is chocolate cake, a bit of powedered sugar and peanut butter--dipped them in chocolate (would use dark next time).

I also messed up a bunch and put too much filling in them, making them too soft. I added Oreo cookie crumbs and they tasted like cookies-n-cream. Dipped in white chocolate. Can you say YUMMY!!!!

I would love to snag one of peacock's right now--they look fabulous!

Yes, I know! Gosh that is the problem with these cake sites. The cakes and cookies and desserts and such look so good, you start drooling. I think I can gain weight just looking at them, haha!
Glad you mentioned Chambord! That was another liquer I was trying to think of the name of. That is a nice one. About the only ones I don't care for are the melon ones.
Another really nice one is Cassis, that was the other one I was trying to think of. It is made from black currants and it is nice.
I like using strawberry jam too. I was thinking of trying a batch using marmalade and chocolate cake with dark chocolate. Bet that would be nice for folks that like orange.
I tend to make mine icecream scoop size and I have to admit, I can manage two of them, but try to stick with only one, haha!
That cookies and cream version sounds great!
I have mixed up more than one kind of cake scrap together too, like yellow and chocolate for marble and such. Haha, most of the time I just bake up cakes to make cake balls, don't usually have that many scraps left if hubby is home!

Totally agree with you on the raspberry jam...have to have the seeded ones or it does taste like booze! I love the idea of the marmalade that sounds good!!
