FAQs about healthier cake balls

How do I keep my cake balls from cracking?

After the cake is rolled into a ball, it needs time to harden in either the fridge or freezer. Likewise, the outer coating typically needs to be heated up enough to melt, but should come off the heat to cool down a bit before it seizes up. Even with all the best intentions, sometimes cake pops can still crack.

How do I keep my cake balls from falling apart?
