What are your favorite flavor combinations for cake balls? Looking for some inspiration! Also, what recipe do you use for them? I know some people use buttercream, but others think buttercream, or too much buttercream, makes them too sweet and mushy. TIA!

Crush up a few Graham crackers and mix them to chocolate cake crumbs. Warm up peanut butter in microwave, add some marhmallow fluff, stir this mixture into the cake/cracker mixture until mixture holds together and can be formed into balls. Refrigerate the balls until firm and dip into milk or dark chocolate.

I never use bc to bind my cake balls. I generally use those fruit cake fillings you buy in tubs or pounds. Strawberry and raspberry are great. Also chocolate and carmel syrups are good.

For my low sugar cake balls I use applesauce.

Anything that is moist will work as a binder, in the case of liquids you must be careful as to the amount so they don't stay mushy.

Ganache is great - just on its own
or flavoured with liquor
or with the zest of orange freshly grated
or flavoured oils - just a drop or two.

These all sound great! Yeah, I tried making them using icing as a binder once, and I didn't like them. Too mushy and icky sweet.
