Cake Ball Recipes

November 4, 2009

cake ballsThis 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!

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.
