I came across a great idea for using up leftover cake.

Put your leftovers in the freezer until you want to use them.

Then crumble them up in a bowl, add a liquid of a complimentary flavour, roll into little balls and cover in choc.

Here are pics of the ones I did this Christmas

Madeira cake and mango puree

There have been a number of discussions (some very long) on cake balls. Check out the forums. My grandsons beg me to make them, and aren't too particular what kind I make! They don't last around my house.

they have been a great seller for me this year!! I discovered them last year. I kinda wonder how long they have been around.

I read in one of the older posts that they are good to freeze for a couple of hours and then dip in chocolate. Don't they crack? I've had problems with them cracking, even when I don't freeze. Any ideas why?
