Getting filling into cake balls?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I have a co-worker wanting lemon cake balls with raspberry filling inside and then dipped in white chocolate. Any ideas on how to incorporate the raspberry filling inside the balls? Thanks for any suggestions.

I've never done a cake ball, I've only seen them. My DD did make them once and I got to see how it is done. But is there a way you could wrap the cake around a raspberry? Or maybe a raspberry dipped into some raspberry syrup? Or mix the raspberry with everything else? and then make the balls?

I've never made a cake ball either so forgive me if I'm out in left field with this. How about a piping bag with a #6 or #7 tip filled with the raspberry - punch it into the side of the cakeball and squeeze. Not sure it will work but...maybe worth a try?

I would:
- form the ball
- indent the top using my finger
- fill with a small bit of raspberry filling
- pinch the ball back together on top (you might need to add a bit more cake ball "batter")
- dip in chocolate

It sounds delicious!

I would hesitate to use a tip to try to fill a cake ball because they are much more dense than, say, cupcakes. The cake ball will not displace to make room for the filling.
Hope this helps!

the cake balls are pretty dense and I've never even thought about filling them. I think I would flavor the butter cream with raspberry and then mix in the cake. let us know how it turns out.

This sounds like a better idea. And white chocolate raspberry SMBC is to die for. I have made it several times and it is devoured in no time. I don't know which type of butter cream you are making, so I wanted to add that I used SMBC and not the shortening based butter cream.

These are all good suggestions, some I thought of also. You have raised some more questions for me though. I need to ask if it's just the raspberry flavor they want or do they want raspberry filling oozing out of the cake ball. I assumed filling oozing out of the cake ball, if that's the case the suggestion Crabbabs had might be something to try.

Thanks again.

Scoop small balls (about a teaspoon?) of raspberry filling and freeze them. When you are ready to make the cake balls, wrap them around the raspberry "balls" and then re-freeze. Then dip in chocolate. I haven't tried this, but I bet it would work.

Is it possible to use the cupcake filler tip? It's the longer slender tip that comes with the kit. If it works for a cupcake, I don't see why it wouldn't for a cakeball, although I have never made cakeballs.

Good Luck

I think if they want an oozing filling then the suggestion about freezing the filling is a good idea.

BTW this sounds sooo good. Make sure you make extra and send me some. Thanks! icon_biggrin.gif

I was going to give the same suggestion as langranny. I do it all the time and it works perfectly. You can use flavored buttercream, fruit sleeve, etc. The filling will thaw and you get a nice, creamy center. Oh, and filling them using decorating tips doesn't work...the balls are too dense and there's no place for the filling to go. Freezing the filling and wrapping the cake around it is the way to go.

Oh, I am so going to try this next time I do cake balls. Thanks, Langranny, for posting this! Someone else had mentioned you could wrap your cake ball around candy too & I know that works. thumbs_up.gif
