do some practice runs! i've made cake balls 5 or 6 times and I'm still not completely happy with how I make them.

I charge $6/doz for regular (nothing fancy) and $8/doz for pumpkins, ones that are coated with rice krispies or choc. with cocounut or covered with peanuts. No mind you I use the chocolate melts from the craft stores, not the chocoalte from a candy store. I did a side by side comparison with my family and they like the cheaper stuff better. So this allows me to price them lower. Hope this helps.

My DH has tried my cake balls coated with melted baker's white chocolate, candy melts, white candy bark, and white chocolate morsels. Unfortunately he likes the more expensive baker's chocolate! He thinks the candy bark tastes like wax.
