Dipping cake balls! - Page 2

post #16 of 25
I know this is an old post and I dont know if youll read this or not lol.
But I am the cake ball queen and I sell cake balls from my home.
No matter what your recipe says, freeze your cake balls SOLID before dipping. What I do is after I roll them, I stick a toothpick in each and freeze for a good 3-4 hours. THEN dip them. they will be hard like a rock and wont fall apart, and the cold of the cake ball with harden the chocolate around it instantly! for even better results, freeze the plate youre gonna lay them on after dipping.
They thaw very quickly so only take a dozen or so out at a time.

Wow!! There's so many good ideas here. I made cake balls the other day and I thought it would be the last time as they tasted like uncooked cookie mixture. But now I'll have to give them another go. thumbs_up.gif

Great ideas on here! You can also use liquor to add some interesting flavors. Our family loves the jagermeister ones.

I made bekerella's red velvet cake balls last week. They were so yummy! I have tried the Oreo cake balls last year-- delicious!!

I like ski's idea with the plastic fork-- I am going to try that.

I found the article on CC last year and tried cake balls, my family & friends just love them! I freeze them for an hour or so before I dip them, using hot dog tongs, aslong as their frozen well, it works great

I also like ski's idea with the plastic fork with the middle tines missing, and will give em a try icon_smile.gif

I've never made cake balls, but just had a request for 150 "brownie pops", have any of you ever made these? I'm thinking it's along the same idea as cake balls except you use brownies?
