These adorable little balls of fun are delicious and a cute variation for cake-deserving occasions like bake sales, birthday parties, and bridal showers. There are plenty of twists you can take with them, but here's a basic recipe that couldn't be easier. You can impart all sorts of personal creativity in decorating them, coming up with creative flavor combinations, and even sticking sticks in them and making cake pops.


Cake Balls

  • 1 (18.25-ounce) package cake mix
  • 1 (16-ounce) container prepared cake frosting
  • 32 ounces of chocolate candy coating (any flavor)

Prepare the cake mix per the instructions, then cool completely.

Crumble the cake and mix it with the entire can of frosting. Refrigerate the mixture for several hours or overnight.

With a melon baller or your hands, form into small balls and place on a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Freeze for an hour.

Melt the chocolate coating in a glass bowl in the microwave, then dip the balls into it with a toothpick one at a time. Place back on waxed paper.

Decorate as desired and allow to set before serving.
