I decided to try to correct this brilliant idea that I had. Since funfetti is just all the rage right now, I wanted to make a funfetti cake ball and I wanted to make it right. So I started with my original cake ball recipe using funfetti cake mix. Then I used funfetti icing, too (funfetti icing is vanilla icing that comes with it's own little package of rainbow sprinkles to mix in). And I threw in a small handful of sprinkles, too, just for good measure. I made a few big balls (four, to be exact) to attempt to completely recreate these adorable ice cream cone cake pops (I gave all the original ones away and never kept one for myself.....rookie mistake!). Then I used my trusty little scooper and scooped 56 little cake balls. Then I got frustrated and wrapped up the remaining mixture for later use (I find that it generally freezes well, especially if pre-shaped/rolled into balls prior to freezing).
I wanted to have them coated in white, but vanilla funfetti cake with vanilla icing AND vanilla coating seemed a little much. So I went with regular chocolate CandiQuik coating, and I think I'll make some more coated in white chocolate. I adorned them all with a few rainbow sprinkles to match the inside of the cake balls.
