Use a firm cake and you could use a melon baller or similar to get the round shape.

Basic recipe is what ever cake you want, baked and cooled, then crumble it into breadcrumb sized crumbs, add some frosting then mix till it holds its shape, roll into balls and pop a stick in them.
Freeze till firm then dip in melted choc, once choc sets you can decorate.

I found carrot cake with cream cheese frosting was delicious, dont want too much frosting (sugar) as there is lots of choc on each one.

thanks I was thinking that you had to buy a special cake tin or simular.Great ideas its appreciated.

I think you can buy silicone moulds for them if you wanted to - but I'd go for the above suggestions rather than having to buy a special one.

You can do it either the way suggested above or you can buy special cake pans to make them round.I have done both.

Who sells the round white sticks/ skewers ! Those I have seen online seem rather pricy for what they are.

You can buy the tins at either K mart or the Warehouse for around $15.00
