I would like to dip my shaped cakeballs in colored royal icing (over the chocolate). Will this work do you think? I am making cakeballs shaped as flowers and hearts and thought I would dip one side in royal icing.

In all seriousness, can this be done? I want to try something different thats not the usual chocolate or the crappy candy melts...

I don't see why not, but make sure you're cakeballs dont' need to be refridgerated, RI doesn't do good in the fridge.

Can always test a few and find out for sure though... it would be a shame if they didn't turn out and you had to eat them! icon_wink.gif

Yea...darn, that would be too bad...

for my waistline, and thats about it...

Maybe I'll just stick with the dipping in ganache, and save me from eating nothing but salad for the next couple of days...LOL.
