One cake mix produces about 4 dozen cake balls (but the yield can vary depending on how big you make your balls).
- 1 box strawberry cake mix, prepared according to package
- 1 container pre-made strawberry frosting (separated)
- 12-16 ounces vanilla candy melts (white chocolate)
- Rainbow sprinkles (at least 1 cup or more)
- Bake cake according to directions on box. Let cool completely.
- When cake is cool, break it up/crumble into a large mixing bowl.
- Mix in about ¾ of the container of strawberry frosting. Start by adding about half or two-thirds of the frosting, and then add a little more until you've got a nice, firm "dough" that holds together when made into a ball. Note: I find that it works best to "knead" the cake and frosting mixture with my hands until it feels nice and smooth.
- Using a cookie scoop, make balls, rolling each ball gently in the palm of your hands until smooth. Place balls on a large cookie sheet lined with waxed paper or parchment paper.
- Place finished balls in the freezer for at least 20 minutes.
- Meanwhile, melt the candy melts according to package directions. Add sprinkles to a small bowl and set next to your work area. Remove from freezer when you're ready to dip.
- Dip each ball, one at a time, into the candy melts, rolling to cover all sides. Let excess candy drip off. Place coated ball immediately into a bowl of sprinkles and roll around to coat. Place finished cake balls on another lined cookie sheet.

About the Newest Star Darlings Books
Starf! The day Cassie has been dreading since she first arrived at Starling Academy is here. She has been chosen to make the journey to Wishworld for the next Wish Mission. Lady Stella, the headmistress, assures her she’s going to do a starmendous job.
Cassie is so sensitive and perceptive she’ll be a natural! But her mission is even harder than she feared. Everything just seems all wrong. And there’s no help in sight. Could Cassie be the first Star Darling who simply can’t make her Wisher’s wish come true?
Mysterious things continue to happen on Starland every day as the girls wait to see who will go on the next Wish Mission. Piper has a dream that she will be the one and indeed she is. Piper has a lot to learn when she finds herself working at a diner.
Confident that she’s identified her Wisher’s wish, Piper enjoys her time on Wishworld. But as her Countdown Clock ticks away can she dismiss her earlier assumptions and discover the true wish?
Life on Starland is anything but normal these days. The Star Darlings continue to experience mysterious phenomena while trying to focus on their studies and maintain their cover.
Stat athlete Astra is chosen for the next Wish Mission. Her overconfident nature leads her to quick conclusions about her Wisher’s true wish. Can Astra put aside her own interests and assumptions and help Emma before time runs out?
As more and more disturbing things happen on Starland, the Star Darlings try to unravel clues to what’s going on. One theory is that Lady Stella herself is behind all the trouble.
Tessa is selected to travel to Wishworld where she finds herself in a spot that’s perfect for her—an animal shelter.
