Rock on! Time-comsuming, but great if you are willing to put in the effort! Do you plan on making a lot for a party or something? Take your time - bake your cakes one night. Allow them to cool before adding the frosting. Add a little at a time until you reach the consistency you want (more cakey vs. mushy). Roll by hand - I found I preferred 2 tablespoons worth of mix per ball. Freeze overnight. The next day, do your dipping. Double boiler melting, the right dipper (plastic fork, middle tine broken), and patience will lead to beautiful treats. I rolled the ball in the candy melts or chocolate, lifted with a spoon, then took it off of the spoon using the dipper. Placed onto wax paper and slid the dipper straight out from beneath it.
My favorites were (cake-icing-coating): Strawberry-Strawberry-Dark Chocolate
Butter yellow-Almond Butter-Chocolate
Lemon-Lemon-Lemon (this was tough as the lemon extract made the vanilla wafers seize, but some shortening fixed the problem!)
German Chocolate-Coconut Pecan-Chocolate
The possibilities are endless!
