What I Did: My friend wanted to try to find something new to bake at our girls cookie baking afternoon. It seemed easy enough. The cake ball base was prepared without issue, however after getting input from some of our baker friends after the incident, the instructions did not note that you should dip the stick in melted chocolate and let that chill inside of the cake ball. So, when we didn’t do that, the cake balls kept falling through the sticks and fell apart as we were dipping them in the chocolate.
Next Time I Will: The tip we heard from a couple professional bakers after the incident was to melt the chocolate, dip the stick in the chocolate, poke it in the cake and freeze for a couple hours to let the stick set.
