A while ago, my coworker told me about a cake that was mixed with frosting, rolled into a ball, and then coated with chocolate - and it sounds yummy! Then about two days ago, I saw a recipe by Su Yin in Desserts Magazine of cake truffles, which was cake mixed with frosting, rolled into a ball, and coated with chocolate. What a coincidence!
The ones made by Su Yin on the magazine looked so smooth and pretty, but mine was bumpy and not so pretty. I was a little sad that night seeing how my cake balls turned out to be cake lumps. I think it was because the temperature of the room last night was a little cold and the chocolate thickened rather quickly, making it more difficult to coat the cake balls with chocolate.
