Step 2: Bake a Cake and Mash it Up
I chose strawberry. I thought pink would be cute. Next time I'm sticking with chocolate.
Once your cake is cooled - really cooled - crumble it up into a bowl.
Stir in your jar (or homemade) frosting, a little at a time. Once it reaches a nice consistency that will cling together when you roll it in a ball, you're there.
Stick it in the fridge.
