Default Shortening clutch and throttle cables

How many of you have shortened your clutch and throttle cables? The frame on my bike is smaller and so these two cables seem a little long compared to my brake cables. It's not a matter of functionality but rather I want the cables to be neat in appearance with no huge loop over the handlebars.

So, that being said I removed the crimped tip from the clutch cable and cut the cable housing a little and cut the cable as well. That's fine BUT the problem is the throttle cable since it has the 'ball-ends' on both ends of the cable so not so easily shortened. Any suggestions or maybe I should just leave it alone.

Comments, pics, tips and suggestions welcomed.
McGyver could fix that with bubble gum.
