Day 253: Funfetti Cake Balls

These funfetti cake balls are kind of like cake pops, but you don't need the treat sticks. They're so simple and are done in an hour, with most of the time waiting for the cake to bake!

Also remember that tomorrow is the last day to fill out the poll! I'll be baking the poll winner pie on Thanksgiving!

The sprinkles are essential to this sweet treat. They make it festive and fun.First you'll make the cake. I use a 6" cake pan, and even if it seems like you won't get much cake balls, you'll actually get 10! Perfect for a small dessert.

Don't worry about forgetting to grease your pan! We'll crumble the cake anyway, so it won't matter. I don't recommend using a boxed cake mix because you'll get way too much cake out of it.

For the frosting, you only need two tablespoons of it, so this is a great way to use up leftover frosting. I used a store-bought frosting box, but you can use your favorite frosting recipe!

If you want to decorate these further, you can dip the funfetti cake balls into melted white or normal chocolate. And if you have treat sticks, you can make cake pops! All ways taste so good, that you'll be making these for every party!


|Level: 👩🏽‍🍳|Time: 1 hour|Serves: 8-10|


  • 1/2 cup + 3 tablespoons cake flour

  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

  • 1 egg

  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F, and grease (optional) a 6" cake pan.

  2. In a bowl stir together your flour, baking powder, and baking soda. In a stand mixer cream your butter and sugar together. Add your egg and vanilla in slowly. Next mix in half of your flour, all of your buttermilk, and the rest of your flour. Fold in sprinkles with a spatula slowly, careful not to let the sprinkles bleed. Pour into your prepared pan and bake for 25-30 minutes.

  3. Cool your cake and crumble it, until it's like soil. Add your crumbled into a large bowl and add two tablespoons vanilla frosting and mix it with your hands. Roll 10 balls and either serve plain, or dip into melted white chocolate or dark chocolate.
