Cake Balls!

It's recipe week here at Life After Happily Ever After!

If you don't like it... sorry

But these are some amazing works of art... so I think you'll like it.


1 Package of your favorite cake flavor (I picked french vanilla)
1 Package of your favorite icing (I went with the theme of Vanilla)
The ingredients for said cake mix
Candy Melts (can be found at Michael's or Hobby Lobby, or any arts & Crafts store)
Popsicle sticks (optional)

First cook the cake according to the directions and while still hot,crumble in a big bowl.

Add about 3/4 of the package of icing to the crumbled cake and mix until you can't see the icing anymore (again, do this immediately)

Use a spoon, or good tablespoon scoop to roll the mixture into balls and put them onto wax paper.  After every 5 or 6 balls you will need to wash your hands so be sure to do this somewhere where you can get up and down (ie. not on the couch watching TV with your husband with the cookie sheet of balls on your lap, like me) then stick them in the fridge for at least an hour.  I left mine in overnight for good measure.

This is when I forgot to take pictures....

My bad....

But basically, read the directions to heat the candy melts and do that.  Then, take a Popsicle stick and stick it in the side of the ball.  (there will be one side of the ball that is flat from cooling on the rack, be conscious of this side as you cover the balls with the candy -- you will lay the ball back down on this side)

If you want to do sprinkles immediately sprinkle them on.  If you want to do icing, wait for them to cool a bit.


Excuse the messy plate, I got rushed as people started showing up.  ALSO, I would either lay these back on wax paper, or grease the plate, these all stuck to the plate :-(.  Still yummy though!  Not bad for my first try I think!

These are totally not on any diet, but were really great!  The cake stayed moist for days after too!  (At least through Monday morning when my coworkers gobbled the last few up) 

Have a happy Friday Eve! Stay tuned tomorrow for Pizza Dip!
