After making Sofia's tie-dye cupcakes you're bound to have some left over cake batter. What better way to use up the batter than with some more baking fun!

What you'll need:

-cooked cake

-frosting

-food coloring

-wooden skewer sticks

-white cooking chocolate

-rainbow sprinkles

If you are starting this recipe with uncooked cake batter, place the batter in a 7-inch pan and cook at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes, or according to the Cake Boss Cake Mix instructions.

Once cooked, let the cake cool thoroughly.

Mix the crumbled cake and a generous scoop of frosting, don't be shy about adding more frosting! The cake and frosting should form a paste-like mixture.

Sofia likes to add food coloring to her cake and frosting mix. It's up to the baker whether to leave the cakes their natural color or to add some colorful flare. Any dye color should work with a light colored cake base (vanilla and yellow cake work best with mixing food coloring).

Then with a small ice cream scooper, scoop the mixture out of the mixing bowl. If you don't have an ice cream scooper, a tablespoon will also work.

Freeze the cake/frosting scoops for 30 minutes (to an hour depending on consistency of the cake balls).

While the mixture is in the freezer, grab the white chocolate and begin to melt it using a double boiler. Be sure to stir the chocolate continuously so that it does not burn.

Once the chocolate is melted, keep it over the hot water with the heat either turned off or at the lowest temperature.

Roll the cake/frosting scoops into even balls. If the balls seem too soft, continue to freeze until the balls stay together firmly.

Get your sprinkles and melted chocolate ready.

Gather your wooden skewer sticks and dip 1/2 inch of the stick into the melted white chocolate. The chocolate helps to secure the stick to the cake ball. Insert sticks into the cake ball.

Dip the frozen cake balls into the chocolate and decorate.

Dip the cake ball into the remaining melted white chocolate. Coat the balls thoroughly, using a spoon can help coat the entire surface.

Add sprinkles to the cake balls.
