Not your normal cake pops/ cake balls

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I was just thinking this morning...

I normally make my cake pops using the usual cake & frosting mixture.
(FYI: Id like to stay so that they don't have to be refrigerated) At Christmas I made rum balls for the first time using brownies and rum... and got to thinking that i could do that for my pops (please correct me if you dont think that would work)...

Do you all use other combinations other than the usual cake/frostings to make yours?

I'm trying to come up with some different more unique possibilities.

Thanks!!!

let's see, how about Raspberry liqueur and chocolate cake, pineapple cake and coconut rum, lime cake and tequila, the possibilities are endless (and sound yummy!)

Good ideas!

A thought....Anyone ever try peanut butter or the like, in the mix (i guess instead of frosting)?

Not sure if it helps... but when i did my rum balls... i made a full pan of brownies <1 box mix> and only added like a 1/4 c of rum.... they seemed to have the same consistacy as the cake balls do...

So Id guess if that cake is that moist ad maybe a few tsps at a time while mixing.

I would try adding the alcohol into the batter, instead of trying to add it after. Just replace some of the liquid with alcohol. I've never tried it though, so i'm not sure on how strong the flavor will be after its baked.

I make triple chocolate brownie balls, dipped in dark chocolate.... a glass of milk along side is highly recommended!

CiNoRi,

I tried devil's food cake (a really rich, dark chocolaty cake with coffee) with peanut butter, and it turned out great! I recommend the crunchy peanut butter with little peanut-pieces!!

CiNoRi, I just made some with peanut butter, dried mango (re-hydrated) and rum. The peanut butter and mangos were just things that I happened to have around, and I always wanted to put peanut butter in some. I ALWAYS put liquor in my cake balls - sometimes it's the only thing besides cake! This particular combination came together very nicely with my yellow cake.

Deedee1120, if you put the alcohol in your cake batter, all the alcohol will cook out, but it might leave the cake with a very nice flavor.

I have done them with liquer but add it to the chocolate or candy melts instead of the cake balls themselves.

I find when you add it to the cake and bake it the alcohol gets baked out.


I also dont like the fudgey or gooey cake ball so i do my cake balls dry and squeeze them into tight balls and freeze them, this way when you bight into one its like cake and not gooey.

Any flavor cake, any flavor icing, any flavor liquor. Your imagination, or lack of one, is your only stopping point.

How do you do this? Do you add just a little bit like a tbsp to your candy melts or do you add more? Liqueur doesn't make the candy melts or chocolate seize?

I add the liquor to the cake, mix it up, then add the chocolate.
