I used 1 package of cake mix and 1 jar of icing, but 3/4 jar would probably work fine too, just bake it in a 9×13.

Did you get 1 regular box of the cake mix?  If so, that should be enough frosting (although I used the whole can).

I just use one cake mix like PP’s. I only use half a can of frosting though or it seems too mushy to me.

@Running Elley: I use a full can because I like the mushiness better than too dry of a cake ball. They always seem to break apart if I don’t have enough frosting in them to hold them together. After rolling, I keep mine in a fridge for a day so they really seal up, then enrobe in chocolate.

Just put enough icing that it’ll hold the cake together well and you’re good (I think I use only 1/2 a can for a single layer cake mix). It’s not an exact science. They are yummy. Definitely freeze them before covering with chocolate makes it much easier! And as they start to get warm you may need to throw them back in the freezer for a bit.

@iHeartTwinkies: I use iced tea spoons to dip mine. It seems to work the best. If you have multiple sheets of cake balls, do one at a time. Make sure that the others stay nice and cold in the fridge. If they get too warm, you’ll have a gloppy mess of a cake ball in chocolate.
