If any of you have seen April Reed's website, then you've noticed her chocolate cake studded with truffles. I'd like to make a chocolate cake and cover it with cake balls. How? Should I cover the cake in fondant, then stick them on with toothpicks? Can the cake be done in buttercream? I'm afraid that the weight of the balls will make them fall off? Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

I have not seen the cake you refere to either. It would be helpful if you can post a pic or link.
I have a feeling that it is super easy; you are making a big problem out of it when it is a very simple thingicon_smile.gif....... but until I actually see what you are talking about I can't say for sure.

I made a cake that sound like what you are talking about. I used truffles, but Im sure cake balls will be very similar. Mine was covered in chocolate paste, and then I "glued" the truffles on using some melted chocolate. This wont work on a BC cake, there I would imagine your toothpick idea might be the best way.

Who is April Reed? Do you have a link to this site and the cake you are speaking of?

It's aprilreed.com. I can't post the pic but she doesn't have a whole lot of cakes on the site. Just go to her main page and click on cakes. You'll see it.

That cake looks like they must be stuck on with toothpicks or wire.
