I thought it would be fun to see what are all of your favorites. I'm trying a new one today, and if it works... I'll post it.

Over the weekend I did Cookies-n-Cream. It was one of thos kitchen disasters that turned out really well.

I used chocolate cake and white "Ding Dong" filling. It was too wet, so I grabbed a box of Oreo cookie crumbs and added that. Covered in white chocolate and they were delicious!!

I also did Peanut Butter ones--I read that here, though.

my favorite is to add peanut butter and powdered sugar to cake scraps and then roll out into balls and dip in dark chocolate. Yummy!

i only made cakeballs one time. got the recipe from my cake decorating book. i mixed the crumbled cake with either white or dark melted chocolate. they call it chocolate truffles. i decorated them with mini marschm., sugarhearts and sprinkles.

tasted sooo good, but a little bit to sweet for my taste. next time, i will use bitter chocolate and maybe put some pb, mini marschmellow or hershey kiss in the middle

OMG! I just love this site and I am learning how much that I DO NOT KNOW! icon_redface.gificon_redface.gif Never heard of cake balls! icon_redface.gificon_redface.gif

I have been wondering what to do with all of my cake cut offs. I have been putting them in zip lock bags and giving them away. My neighbors line up for them!

This is a great idea! icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif

This is a great topic. I haven't experimented yet, but from the sounds of it so far, I just may have to! The Peanut Butter sound great! When marketing these, does anyone have a different name for them, than Cake Balls. Everybody at my work is in love with them, but they don't like the name. Everything I have come up with, to me, has a nasty overtone to them. Could just be a dirty mind though. icon_confused.gif Thanks!

We have named ours Crema LoveHandles...cause if you eat to many...that's what you'll get. We always get a giggle with it. My favorite thing is to ask my husbands Co-workers Has Shane told you about my Lovehandles?

Around my area we just call them cake truffles!! I make them often as I hate to waste the cake scraps. Italian cream with a little cream cheese icing to hold it together then dipped in melted chocolate is really good. I also have used fillings or preserves in addition to my buttercream icing. Anything that will hold the cake to gether to make a ball will work. I know someone that added bourbon to their italian cream cake truffles and they were excellent!! I freeze my scraps until I am ready to make these. Oh yeah, white or french vanilla cake dipped in orange flavored chocolate is like a "dreamsicle" MMMMMMMmmmmmmm!!

Oh yum, the peanut butter and oreo ones sound so good!

I was actually planning on making some more tonight.

Over the weekend I made 2 different ones for a party:

vanilla cake w/amaretto liquer, dipped in white chocolate

chocolate cake with Bailey's and Heath crunch bits, dipped in chocolate.

Sorry, everyone, but I've never made cake balls before. So do you just take scraps of cake, mix them with frosting or filling to clump it together into a ball shape and dip them in chocolate? Thanks

Ok...I've got a winner. I used white cake with leftover bavarian cream, then it was too wet. I added powdered sugar and crunched up some cheap dollar store chocolate chip cookies, and mix it up. Then I dunked them in chocolate. Yummy! It tasted like chocolate dipped cookie dough!
