I want to make mini snowball cakes for my christmas dessert table.  Does anyone have any suggestions on how to cover the cake balls with marshmallow like the hostess snowball cakes.  I've found plenty of marshmallow  frosting recipes but the frosting won't firm up like the marshmallow covering the hostess ones.  Also how early do you think I can make them.  I have looooots of cooking and baking to do for this dinner (serving 30).  Need to do as much as possible ahead of time.icon_rolleyes.gif

AI googled this not sure if it will help.....I don't think that your gonna find frosting to harden like you want but I could be wrong. There are tons of recipes if you Google mini snowball caked.

kazita Posted 5 Dec 2012 , 9:52am

ANow if I ass doing them I would make round cakeballs than use the recipe from the last website that I gave you for your marshmallow coating. Use a fork or cakepop stick to dip it into the coating than roll into your colored coconut than either leave on cakepop stick for cakepop or remove the stick and sever on a plate

kazita Posted 5 Dec 2012 , 10:00am

AWoe I went to the second page all by myself lol I was determined to find a recipe plus I can't fall asleep so I just kept searching

SPODN Posted 5 Dec 2012 , 3:21pm

Thanks Kazita, I spent hours searching google and coming up with loads of recipes but none of the marshmallow icings appear to set up like the hostess cakes thats why I requested help from my friends at cake central.  I'm thinking about trying a homemade marshmallow recipe.  I want the coating to come out like the candy peeps.

kazita Posted 5 Dec 2012 , 7:49pm

AThat last website I gave you uses marshmallow to cover the cakes
