Has anybody seen this? Anybody used it? I'm wondering how good it is... and it looks like you just bake the cake in balls, don't add the frosting

I have seen the machine. The only thing is I think they will be dry because theirs no frosting. Unless maybe you simple syrup them. But you still have the cake with no frosting.

I have this. Got it at Kohls on sale and it's cute. It's fast and easier to coat since it's light and does not fall apart.

Taste wise, they taste yummy by themselves....my kids had fun eating them. I even cheat and use a Dunkin Hines box mix.

As for chocolate coated cake balls, they don't compare to the real stuff. I made the "baby-cakes style cake balls" and brought them to work. There were two coworkers there that I had taste-test. One of them have had my "real" cake balls and the other had not. They both said it was good, however, my coworker who's had the real cake balls said the real ones are much better. The coworker who had never had the real ones said these were very good and she really liked them (but she had nothing to compare them to).

I'm keeping the machine simply for the novelty of it. I can make naked cake balls to entertain my kids and their friends. I can also chocolate coat them and give them out at kids birthday parties.

I have this machine too and it makes fun little cake balls. They are not even close to the flavor of the hand rolled with frosting inside kind. To me they taste like those tiny chocolate dipped donuts that come 6 in a pack I had as a kid. The only problemo for me is yet another machine to find room for in the kitchen!
