I tried making my first cake balls...well YUCK! I tried a basic chocolate cake mix (milk chocolate) and a "classic chocolate" frosting. Not only was my mixture grossly soggy...it had absolutely NO flavor at all. It was like putting wet bread in my mouth. YUCK! I threw me mess into the garbage icon_cry.gif

You might want to try mixing in less frosting, And maybe even try a different one, like cream cheese icing. I like dipping them in white choc, also. Good Luck if you try them againicon_smile.gif

I tried making them once too and hated them! It was like mush! I have read some posts since then and i think I put way too much frosting in. From what I read you don't need much frosting at all, and I think I used an entire can of frosting in mine.

I made them once and thought they were horrible--never again.

don't give up! add a little icing at a time. you need just enough for it to bind together ... some moist cakes don't need anything at all.

I actually believe the cake would have been moist enough to work without adding the frosting. Of course it still didn't have any flavor. I will try making them again but will try for a new flavor...

I just made some yesterday, rum and raisin flavour but I hardly put any butter cream in them. Just a bit and bind it all together with lyles golden syrup. Yummy!!! icon_smile.gif My son can't walk past my cupcake courier without pinching one and he's my best critic. thumbs_up.gif
