*This post is sponsored by Lunchbox so that I can make this snowball cake. As always, all photography and opinions are mine.*

The first time I had a snowball cake was about three years ago at a FANCY restaurant. 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.

Classic Snowball Cake Recipe

Basically, this snowball cake has everything I am crazy about, packed into a neat little dome shape:

  • Cheesecake
  • Devil’s food cake
  • Pudding
  • Frosting
  • Coconut

This dessert is worth every single calorie.

Easy Snowball Cake Recipe

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!

How to Make Snowball Cake

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?!
