So my mom wanted to try something new so she started to look up cake balls. This is a very good variable instructable (good for tweaking with your taste's)

rubber spatula (not shown)
cookie sheet
small cookie scoop or small ice cream scoop

tooth picks
mini paper cups
rubber gloves (optional)
knife (preferably Paula Dean knifes)

cake mix (flavor of choice)
jar of icing (flavor of choice)
eggs (not shown)
vegetable oil

Step 2: Cake mix

Depending on what thing of cake mix you bought to make, the directions vary but this is how mine was. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Take a bowl and mix up about 18.25 ounces of packaged cake mix, 1 1/3 cup water, 2 tablespoon of vegetable oil, and 3 large eggs. Mix this for about 30 seconds on low with a mixer until moistened. Grease the pan with pam and pour in cake mix, spread it even. place cake in for about 30 - 32 minutes. Cool cake in the pan, this is much easier to work with in later steps.

Step 3: Crumbling the cake

Now since the cake is cool, take some rubber gloves (its a lot easier) and put them on. Take your hands and crumble the cake until its like sand. This part can be easily ruined so do not mash the cake in your hand gently just crush the cake.

Don't you mean "Cake Ball Recipe"? I can see it used to be called "Variety Cake Balls", you just have to reorder the title, and remove the plural... These look good by the way!

I had half of a birthday cake in my fridge and was wanting to try mushing it up and dipping little balls of it in chocolate.  I'm happy to know that someone else is like-minded and also thought that would be a good idea!!  I mush my cake and icing together anyways when eating cake and it's delicious because it is so moist but apparently it doesn't look as appetizing to others.  I think that this is an excellent way to share the amazing taste and texture of the mushed cake/icing and I really love your idea of dipping them in sprinkles!  The cellophane wrapping is a great idea and a bouquet of these would make for a cute gift!
