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!!!

Carol: do NOT use the microwave for melting the chocolates...An average box of cake mix should yeild approx 80 cake balls. To continuously re-melt chocolate in the microwave, will turn the chocolate into garbage! The Easiest way to melt your chocolate (and this can be done for several colors at a time if you want to) is: take a frying pan (size depends on how many colors you are melting)fill it 2/3's full with water. Place on low flame. Put ceramic tea cups in the fry pan. Put chocolate melts into cups and let melt slowly. Keep watch on your water level as you will have to add more. I have several cups that are Only used for this purpose, so once I'm done dipping and the cup cools down, I just wrap it with plastic wrap till needed again. See my post above for doing the cake balls correctly... Hope this helps. AND, ladies...please be advised that these cakeballs are NOT something that can be thrown together in half an hours time. It will take you quite a bit of time to do this right...b
