Cake Balls are fun and easy (although a little time consuming) to make! The reason they are time consuming is because a box of cake mix makes about 60 cake balls. If you don't have time and don't need 60 cake balls, you can bake the cake, cut it in half and only use half to make cake balls. The other half will keep well in the refrigerator in a big zip lock bag for a couple days. But I say, if you have the time, make all 60 and share with friends. Believe me, everyone loves cake balls. My favorite combo is devils food cake with pecans and chocolate frosting inside with ghiradelli 70% dark chocolate and coconut flakes on top. A very close second is spice cake with cream cheese frosting inside with ghiradelli white chocolate and walnuts on top. I use 1/2 a can of frosting instead of a whole can and I cut the dipping chocolate with shortening so that it coats the cake balls better and isn't too thick. Serve them in mini cupcake liners, they look totally professional.
