I gotta know what the secret to covering the ball cake is!! I've tried a number of times and have all turned into big hot messes! I look around here and see such beautiful work. Does the fondant need to be thicker or thinner? what is it? help!

When I make cake balls I make sure that they aren't to moist so I can roll
them. I actually use a cookie scoop and it work perfect (for me). After the balls are made I stick them in the freezer for about 15 min to set. While they are setting I melt the chocolates (never tried fondant). Allow chocolate to cool a little before dipping. Once everything is ready (set & cooled) I dip the balls using a dipping spoon and then lay them out on wax paper. Stick back in freezer for a few mins and then they are ready. HTH.

I think the OP is talking about a ball cake, not cake balls.

Try candy clay instead of fondant.
