You can use butter cream, just let the cake cool completely before mixing it together otherwise it will break down the cream and turn to mush.

Has anyone try to use custard/pastry cream instead of frosting?

Has anyone tried using real chocolate to coat these? What about homemade buttercream? Ilove cake, but really don't like ready mad icing.

I like mixing a little pudding (probably ~10 ounces) in with the cake instead of frosting. Frosting makes the cake way too sweet, and the pudding gives the cake a remarkably moist, gooey consistency reminiscent of cookie dough but with a little more firmness. After dipping the cake balls in the chocolate, I like to remove the stick and add a dollop of melted chocolate on top of the ball with a spoon so the ball is completely encased in chocolate.

I usually use melted chocolated chips - but, can't wait to try the confectioner's coating!

I've also learned that using really warm cake gets mushy....actually that keeps its moist as a ball, tool. I also used hard choc when I made it with frosting and it became sticky instead of solid like the first time I'd made them. Actually, melting the hard cooking chocolate was even better!!!
