Cake Ball Polka Dot Cake


I've been seeing some super cute polka dot cakes around the web. Most of them use baked cake balls made in a little cake ball baking appliance. I really don't have the space to store another appliance just to make a cake, so I thought I could try using cake balls made with cooked cake and icing (a la cake pop style).

This cake is a two step process. First, I made the cake balls and froze them overnight. The next day I whipped up another cake mix .  I put the frozen cake balls in the pan and covered them with cake batter.  I was worried that the cake balls might not keep their shape during the baking process, but they did!  It turned out great!  I used the new Limited Edition Duncan Hines Fruit Punch Frosting Creations for the cake balls, but you can use any flavor frosting to flavor the cake balls. Get creative!

  5. Don't worry I am not a stalker. HaHa! I actually made your Creamy Burrito Casserole today so I was reading through some older posts and I said "hey, that's today" on an old march 8th entry. So don't be scared. P.S. I posted on the casserole - LOVED IT.
