Pink Velvet Cake Truffles
Quick and easy cake truffles that are rich, creamy and covered in white chocolate. They are an easy bite-sized dessert for Valentine’s Day or Mother’s Day.
I used my leftover pink velvet cake crumbs to make these easy pink velvet cake truffles, also known as pink velvet cake balls.
I can’t believe I didn’t make these sooner.
That pink velvet cake tastes even BETTER in truffle form.
They are BITE-SIZED and very SOFT and so PETTY in pink!
This cake truffle recipe comes together in LESS than an hour.
You can make these cake balls with cream cheese or any flavor of frosting you like.
For some of these pink velvet truffles, I covered them completely in shredded white chocolate and these ended up being my FAVORITE!
For others, I just drizzled some white chocolate on top of each pink truffle.
Next time, I might roll them around in sprinkles or even shredded coconut…Mmmm.
By the way, if you want to make the NO BAKE CAKE BALLS, you can use a store-bought pink velvet cake mix and mix in cream cheese or frosting into that mixture until you have a dough-like consistency and use that to make truffles too.
How to make cake truffles? How do you make cake balls?
Bake the cake first and then crumble it. Mix it with frosting until you have a smooth dough-like texture. Scoop small portions and roll into balls. Place them on a cookie tray, lined with wax paper. Chill in the freezer for 30 minutes until firm. Then, dip it in melted chocolate and place on a sheet of wax paper to harden again. You can also toss some sprinkles, if you like.
How do you make cake balls on a stick?
Prepare the cake balls first and place them on a cookie tray, lined with wax paper. Dip the end of lollipop stick in melted chocolate and then push it into each cake ball. Chill for 30 minutes in the freezer so it becomes firm. Then, dip it in melted chocolate and place them on a sheet of wax paper or push the sticks into a Styrofoam cube. Allow the chocolate to set and enjoy.
Can you freeze cake balls for later use?
Yes, you can freeze them for up to a month in sealed freezer bags, as long as you don’t dip them in melted chocolate first.
What is the best chocolate to use for cake pops?
Wilton’s candy melts are the best because it dries and sets very firm plus there are many chocolate colors available.
Here are some FLAVOR VARIATIONS you can try:
- For birthday cake truffles, use Funfetti cake mix.
- For Christmas cake truffles, use gingerbread or spice cake mix.
- For Chocolate cake truffles, use chocolate cake mix.
- For Carrot cake truffles, use carrot cake mix.
- For vanilla cake balls, use yellow cake mix.
Be sure to make A LOT of these on Valentine’s Day because it’s impossible to eat just one or at least I don’t have that type of self-control…lol.
Well, that’s all for today.

Pink Velvet Cake Truffles

- Prepare your pink velvet cake and frosting.
When the cake has cooled down, dump the cake into a deep bowl and crumble it with your hands OR you can use your mixer with the paddle attachment to crumble it. Make sure there are no lumps.
- Add ¼ cup frosting into the bowl of cake crumbs and mix until you have a soft dough-like consistency. It should be wet enough for you to easily make balls without resulting in a sticky mess.
Note: Start with 1/4 cup frosting and then gradually add more (a few teaspoons at a time). Sometimes, I don't use the entire amount and sometimes I have to use a little more. It depends on the weather and if I accidentally over-baked the cake. Over-baking dries the cake and more frosting needs to be added to get the proper consistency.
Scoop out about 1 tablespoon of the cake mixture and roll into balls. Place them on a cookie tray, lined with wax paper.
Tip: Wearing disposable plastic gloves makes this step easier and less messy.
Chill in the freezer for 30 minutes or until the balls become firm.
- Dip the cake balls in melted white chocolate.
Then, roll them in a tray, filled with white chocolate shreds until they become fully coated. Enjoy!
- Leftovers can be stored in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 2 days.
Until next time, tata my lovelies!
