They didn't look so good after I covered them in chocolate. Most recipes just called for you to roll the chocolate covered ball off the spoon or fork onto parchment paper. These balls didn't look so good. I couldn't get the balls to roll off the fork or the spoon so that the chocolate on the outside would look smooth and round. They were just sorta deformed looking and where some parts of the cake was exposed, it would ooze out because as the cake defrosted, the only way it could go was out.
I brought them into my office and it took less than an hour for over 60 balls to be devoured!
My first time making these ever, turned out kinda bleh to me. Perhaps that just because I'm quite critical of my own baking. The Funfetti cake was a bit too moist and sticky to begin with and most recipes that you find online will have you mixing the cake with a whole container of frosting. Don't do that...it's wayyyy too much. I would probably start with half a container if you're going to buy it and work more into the mixture if it's not sticky enough to form a ball.
Dara's birthday party was this past Saturday and I had to make sure these balls looked a bit more pleasing to the eye. Dark chocolate cake with milk chocolate coating...and ta-da!
They tasted yummy too!
