Hi everyone..How do you dip cake balls into chocolate melts so that they come out smooth? I made some today for my daughters class and they just look all rough and not round and smooth.
Maybe freeze them for five or ten minutes first. This has helped me a lot.
Freeze the balls OR let them sit overnight uncovered to dry out.
I've done it both ways.
I freeze my cake truffles before dipping. Dip, tap dipping fork gently to remove excess & set to dry.
Thanks..but it seems when I melt the wafers its kind of thick. I'm wondering if that has something to do with it? I'm afraid if I melt them too long they'll scorch..
I use paramount crystals or if you can't get them just use a bit of crisco in your chocolate. That will help thin the chocolate out & makes it smoother. I also freeze my cake balls before dipping them. I made a whole bunch last night but forgot to freeze them this time. I had indentions from my chocolate tools in the balls. They were too soft to dip. So freeze them, that will really make a difference.
