Ok, yesterday I said I had been so frustrated over my first attempt at Cake Balls, I was never ever baking or cooking again.
Tonight is going to be a salad supper at my knitting group. I made Cake Balls today that turned out much closer to the ideal picture I showed yesterday. Once again, I am not going to name websites because I read many while looking for advice. I took advice from here and there, and some bits of advice appeared in many sites.
I began with a yellow cake mix, baking it in two round layers. I like Duncan Hines.
If you don't like melting chocolate or the idea intimidates you, the uncoated cake balls are really good as is.
I think pondering cake flavors and frosting combinations is going to be a fun past time.
