Hi! I want to try doing Lemon Cake Balls but can't figure out what to use as the coating. I was wondering if anybody had any ideas. I want to use lemon cake with a lemon frosting or pie filling for the wet part to hold it all together. I bought some lemon juice and a lemon to use with it possibly. I wanted to use lemon zest in the frosting and/or in the outside coating. I would be grateful for any input. Thanks!

what about just a powdered sugar glaze?? Like on glazed donuts? That would be really good with lemon!

I am not sure what you would use, but I will be very interested to see what others suggest. I just made my first cake balls this weekend and tried them out on my family. They loved them!!

I am going to take them as "free" samples to my daughter's preschool for the teachers. They have been asking about my cakes.

You could use a really nice lemon butter cream and rolled in powdered sugar.

Roll 'em in coconut or powdered sugar. I've done them mixed with a little raspberry jam (a little gooey, but then freeze them), and dipped them in white chocolate also.

You could use white chocolate and a lemon flavored royal icing to decorate.
