Frequent Asked Questions: 

  • Can I make cake balls ahead of time?
    • Yes, you can make these up to 1 week before and place  them in the freezer until you are ready to serve. Remember to store in a freezer safe sealed  container. Also, I would recommend waiting to place the candy eye balls on before serving with  a little bit of melted candy. Once the eyes have been frozen and come to room temperature the  dye can sometimes spread. 
  • What is a cake ball?
    • A cake ball is pretty much a truffle made from a baked cake and frosting then dipped in melted chocolate. 
  • How do you get the fork into the eyeball?
    • So, to have a dramatic effect Before the candy melts  harden, I slowly added a fork in the top about ¼”. You then just drizzle a little red candy melt to  the fork so it will all harden together once in the freezer. 
  • How do you dip the cake ball?
    • For these I recommend dipping the bottom into the melted  chocolate then drizzling the melted candy over with a spoon until completely covered.  5. Do I need coconut oil to melt the candy melts? I highly recommend coconut oil; this will give the  chocolate a smooth texture once melted. 
  • Do I need to really freeze the cake balls before adding the melted candy?
    • Yes, this is extremely  important step because you need to make sure the cake does not fall apart. They will be much  harder to work with if they are not frozen.
