Hi there, I have some cake and chocolate left over from yesterday so I decided to give cake ball a try, as I'm reading the recipe I noticed that it says to use flavored coffee creamer, buttercream or any other binder and I was wondering, can I use some white chocolate mousse that I made with heavy whipping cream and didn't use because it wasn't the consistency I needed for a filling, it ended up very "watery" but tasty, that's why I want to use it, it'll be a waste to throw it out. TIA icon_wink.gif

I've only used buttercream as a binder....what about mixing just a small amount of cake and mousse? Just try a few and see how it works. icon_smile.gif

You can use anything you want as the "binder" for cakeballs, mousse, frosting, creamer, milk, pudding - whatever. Just respect the ingredients (meaning refridgerate, if necessary) and go to town. Roll them in balls ( I use a cookie scooper for consistency and then pop in fridge/freezer prior to dipping) and flip after chocolate dip (less "feet").

I make a lot of cupcake pops & I use whatever I have @ that time(buttercream,creamer,etc.) to bind the cake together.

Did you use a mold for the pops or were they free handed?

I use a mini ice cream scoop, the one that's about the diameter of a quarter. Then glove up and roll in your hands. Don't make them too mushy, it's not hard to overdo the liquid/buttercream.

I free hand them,they're very easy to do.

Well, I'm sad because I didn't get to make my cake balls icon_cry.gif my DH came late at night from work and ate most of my leftover cake! At least he said it was good cake icon_razz.gif I'll have to wait for next time to try them.... icon_sad.gif

I haven't tried them, but saw a recipe online that called for cream cheese
