The first time I had a Cheesecake Stuffed Devil’s Food Cake was about three years ago at a FANCY restaurant.

On the menu, it was listed as a “Snowball Cake” and I was so INTRIGUED by the name that I ordered it right away.

It’s still one of the the BEST desserts I have ever eaten.

Every time I think about it, my mouth starts watering! hahaha

Basically, this cake has everything I am CRAZY about, packed into a neat little dome shape…

Cheesecake … check

Devil’s food cake … check

Pudding … check

Coconut … check

Trust me…This dessert is WORTH every single calorie 😉

I wanted to LEARN how to make this cake at home and I found a recipe HERE that was very EASY to follow and and it starts off with a cake mix.

It tasted exactly like the Snowball Cake I had at that fancy restaurant…Yay!

I had ASSUMED that the cake is baked first and the center is hollowed out and filled with cheesecake.

But I was wrong… the cake and cheesecake are actually both baked TOGETHER.

Isn’t that the COOLEST thing ever?!
