Cake Balls

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Rinad84

This is a delicious recipe. Made it a few times and made some changes along the way. Such as substituting the frosting stuffing with cream cheese! It's my fav! And also making the frosting from scratch rather than the store bought one. You can basically try any sort of stuffing or frosting you desire. It's very easy to make... enjoy!

My daughter turned 4 yesterday and I decorated a cake for her and had so many cake scraps that I felt I had to do something with them. I used my own custard butter cake recipe and followed the rest 100%. What a wonderful recipe - very rich though. No-one could eat more than two. Thanks for posting Rinad84 I will be sure to use this recipe again.
