I seem to always have a problem with cake balls. I dip them partially frozen on toothpicks or skewers, but then as the coating sets, I get these big cracks. What am I doing wrong?

Please advise before I go insane.

They're too cold. Let them warm up a little more before you dip them.

Yup, let them get completely to room temp.

Is there a reason why you are dipping them cold? I use the coolest little spiral dipper thingy to dip, works super slick.
