  • 1 box cake mix (any flavor)
  • Ingredients required by cake mix (usually eggs, oil, and water)
  • 1 can of frosting (any flavor to complement the cake)
  • 24 oz vanilla candy coating (or any flavor)
  • Colored sprinkles for decoration


  1. Bake the Cake:
    • Prepare the cake according to the box instructions. Bake in the appropriate pan as directed and allow to cool completely.
  2. Crumble the Cake:
    • Once cooled, crumble the cake into a large mixing bowl. Aim for a fine texture with no large chunks.
  3. Mix with Frosting:
    • Add the entire can of frosting to the crumbled cake. Mix thoroughly until the mixture is evenly combined and holds together when pressed.
  4. Form Cake Bites:
    • Roll the cake mixture into tablespoon-sized balls. Place them on a baking sheet lined with wax paper to prevent sticking.
  5. Melt Candy Coating:
    • In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the candy coating in 45-second intervals, stirring between each interval, until the coating is completely smooth.
  6. Dip and Decorate:
    • Using a fork or a dipping tool, dip each cake bite into the candy coating, ensuring they are completely covered. Let the excess coating drip off before transferring them back to the wax paper.
    • Immediately after dipping, sprinkle the cake bites with colored sprinkles before the coating sets.
  7. Set:
    • Allow the cake bites to set on the wax paper until the coating is firm. For quicker setting, chill the cake bites in the refrigerator.

  • Fine Texture: For an even finer texture, use a food processor to crumble the cake.
  • Handling Sticky Mixture: If the mixture is too sticky, lightly grease your hands with cooking spray before rolling the balls.
  • Avoid Water: Ensure no water gets into the candy coating as moisture can cause the coating to seize up and become unusable.
  • Storage: Store the cake bites in an airtight container in the refrigerator for several days or freeze them for longer storage.


These Easy Cake Bites are a versatile treat that can be customized to fit any theme or occasion. Whether you choose to make them for a birthday party, holiday gathering, or just as a fun project with kids, they’re sure to be a hit. Enjoy the process and the delightful results!
