I've never made cake balls so I'm not sure if this flavors would work but something with peppermint, eggnog an just simple chocolate.

My suggestions are chocolate with crushed up Andes mints, eggnog and red velvet. You can make them look like ornaments with colored chocolate as decorations. Have fun with them!!

Butter Pecan cake! The choco w/mints and eggnog sound wonderfulicon_smile.gif

As for a cake ball tree - get yourself a styro cone @ Dollar Tree. Paint it w/choco - just a bit at a time and stick the cake balls on just as the painted choco starts to set. It will take time - *lots*! icon_smile.gif - but will be great. Vary the size of the balls too - keeping them rather small (think marbles). Remember to stagger the rows as you go around. Using some red &/or green now the then helps too.
