Snowball Cake

"This snowball cake was on the cover of food & family magazine I received yesterday, it looked so good, I had to make it last night. It was exactly as I hoped. I used my Pampered Chef Batter bowl to bake mine in and it turned out great. Can't wait to make this during the holidays"

  1. this was a tasty cake and I loved the frosting...but the filling/center was not what I was looking for to emulate the 'snowball'. It was good, but too dense & rich - it was more like a cheesecake filling than a creamy whipped filling. I will keep the recipe on hand as it was a kid-friendly fun cake. I baked mine in my Pampered Chef mixing bowl.
  2. this cake is AMAZING!!!!! However I used crushed up white chocolate on the ouside of the cake instead on the cocount. I am asked to make this cake every time we have a family function....
  3. This tastes just like the Hostess cup cakes that I had as a kid. The family loves it each time I make it. Thanks for Posting this Great dessert!


I don't think there's anything better than spending time with family and friends and enjoying delicious food together. I just love food. I love reading about food, writing about food, cooking food and.. not surprisingly, eating food. My latest passion is food-photography! I'm still learning a lot, but I'm trying to post photos with all my recipes and reviews. I read recipe books, magazines and food blogs like novels. I get such satisfaction when someone enjoys a meal or dessert that I have prepared. It is the biggest compliment to me when my family and friends rave about my cooking. There are so many terrific recipes on this site. If I'm looking for something, I'm sure to find it here. I do have stacks of my own favorite recipes which I am slowly but surely getting in my cookbooks here . I have had so many awesome reviews and fabulous photos taken of my recipes... I try to thank everyone personally .. I sincerely appreciate each and every review and or comment left. I know it takes time to photograph and upload photos - So I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for finding and trying my recipes and taking the extra effort...
