This is a delicious recipe you can use with leftover cake scraps if you're a baker. Or just whip it up as a dessert anytime. Very simple!



Bake cake as directed on box. Crumble cake into a mixing bowl when it comes out of the oven. Add the container of icing and mix well. Make into balls about the size of a walnut or however big you want them. Roll in nuts or powdered sugar.

You can also add various goodies into the mix before you form the balls, such as, raisins, crasins, nuts, coconut, dried or candied fruits, chocolate chips, candies. There are many, many possibilities with this recipe! It is very versatile.


The combination of cake mixes and icings are endless and so are the garnishes that you can choose to roll the balls in. Chill when rolled in garnish of choice.

You can also use cake scraps to make this recipe if you are a baker, like myself and use any icing you may already have on hand. You can make these as elegant or as simple as you want. Makes a great dessert to take to any gathering and they don't last long at all!

I made these the other day for the first time they were a big hit with everyone.


  • cake mix
  • frosting
  • chocolate chips



Make cake mix as per box instructions and bake as directed. Once it's cool, crumble the cake into a bowl as fine as you can get it. Put 1/2 cup of frosting and mix together well. Roll into balls and put into fridge for one hour.

Then when the cake balls are ready, melt a bag of chocolate chips. Using a tooth pick, roll the cake ball in the chocolate. Put on a platter and let the chocolate dry. That's it, you're done. They are like Timbits doughnut holes.

These remind me of winter and the Holidays because of their snowy coating. I know many people make these with walnuts but I happen to prefer pecans or almonds - in that order.
