For Frosting:

  • In a separate bowl beat together cream cheese and icing sugar until well combined.
  • Mix together the crumbled cake and frosting with the help of wooden spoon, until the mixture becomes moist and no lumps are there.
  • Now for making cake balls, take a small scoop or 1 tbsp mixture in your hands and start rolling. Once all balls are done, cover and chill for couple of hours.

  • Simultaneously, add sprinkles or drizzle some melted white chocolate over the cake truffles to decorate them.
