DOES ANYONE HAVE AN IDEA FOR A CAKE BALL USING SPICE CAKE?
How about using a cream cheese icing with a tad of pumpkin and some pumpkin spice added then dipped in orange candy melts?
OR, O O O what about using cream cheese icing with apple cider as the liquid and using apple pie spice in it?
OR....how about using homemade caramel icing instead of cream cheese icing?
Just some random thoughts early in the morning, BEFORE, I've had all my coffee! LOL

I recently made several dozen pumpkin spice cake balls for a wedding and they were a HUGE hit....I used pumpkin spice cake, added pumpkin spice coffee creamer for the flavoring, and dipped them in vanilla candy coating. Of the 5 different flavors I made, these were the most popular.
There is a new creamer out called "Vanilla spiced rum" by GFIC, I wonder how that'd work? Otherwise, someone told me they used just plan sweetened condensed milk to the crumbled cake and made them that way. I think they'd be good dipped in white chocolate...gonna have to try it!!
great ideas..........the spice cakeballs that I make are just spice cake dipped in white chocolate with cream cheese flavoring.
I just bought pumpkin spice creamer and eggnog to try cake balls with. I have some vanilla cake in the freezer. It's thawing now...I can't wait!!! I'm going to dip them in white chocolate and sprinkle with nutmeg/cinnamon.
I just made some spice cake balls. Used one regular spice cake mix (added an extra egg to the mix). After it cooled, I put in one bag of Hershey's cinnamon chips, 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, 2 cups of my "dream whip" icing and 1/2 cup of sweetened condensed milk. The batch made 66 cake balls. Then I dipped them in orange Wilton candy melts (one package of these covered about 44 balls) and then drizzled chocolate candy melts over the orange. They are so good!
Just made these the other night for a potluck...they were gone in half an hour! People could not stop talking about them.
Pumpkin spice cake, creme brulee coffe creamer, dipped in Wilton white candy melts and sprinkled with cinnamon and chopped pecans-yummy!
I've even made these with just plain yellow cake mixed with pumpkin pie spice and BC. So far they have been my best cake balls.
What's your technique for getting the cake balls into a nice round shape? Mine are usually a little lopsided!
Mine were a little lopsided too, but no one seemed to notice or care
I also made them too big...I used my Tupperware tablespoon but I kept overfilling it because I thought they didn't look big enough. By the time I dipped them and topped them with the pecans they were huge. I think I'll keep using the tablespoon because it has such a nice, round shape, but I will make sure to level it off.
IMHO, I don't think they need to be perfectly round...it adds to the charm!
Do you use the pumpkin spice cake recipe that is posted in the recipes section? These cake balls sound good. How do you make them? I thought I saw another forum on how to but can't seem to find it.
Thanks! Glad to know I'm not alone!
well I found it this morning - making cake balls. It's in an article on the front page -
I use the pumpkin spice cake recipe that's in the recipe section here on CC and the article on the CC home page about cake balls. There's also a cake ball recipe in the recipe section that was helpful.
I keep seeing where some put in creamer to bind cake balls....Is this the powder creamer or liquid creamer? I dont see this in the recipe forum. Also do you add before you cook...or after-when forming scraps into balls...?
