Birthday Balls

These were quite the hit at Lindsay's 30th Birthday! 
adapted from Bakerella

1 box of funfetti cake mix
Ingredients on box
1 can of funfetti frosting
 2 bags of vanilla candy melts, any color
1 tbsp. shortening to thin the chocolate

Make cake according to directions on box. Once cake has cooled crumble it into pieces into a large bowl (you could also use a mixer). Mix with can of funfetti frosting, beware it get's pretty messy! Roll into small balls and place on a large cookie sheet.  You can use butter on your hands to help it not stick. You should get about 4 dozen. Place in freezer for at least 20 minutes to chill.

Melt candy melts in microwave according to package directions. You may add a tablespoon of shortening to thin if needed. Remove a few cake balls (I recommend no more than 5) at a time from the freezer. Use a toothpick to dip entire ball into melted chocolate. Swirl around to remove excess. Place ball back on baking sheet and let cool. Repeat process with remaining cake balls.

 Be careful! These are very addictive!
