Take about a half of the cake loaf and crumble it into pieces. Make it a mixture of large and small pieces so that it is easier to mold later.

Step 2:

Mix the cake crumbles with frosting or cream cheese. If the mixture becomes too dry, add more frosting or cream cheese. But if the mixture becomes too soft, you need to add more cake. keep mixing until you get a consistency that can be formed into a dough.

Step 3:

Grab a small handful of the cake mixture and roll it into a little ball in the palm of your hands. Make several balls of cake and set them aside.
