Step 1

Crumble cake (or cupcakes) into a large bowl, working it into small crumbs. Add frosting and mix until well combined. Mix in rainbow sprinkles until the batter looks like confetti.

Shape into approximately 1" balls, using about 1 tablespoon of the cake mixture per ball. Set aside on wax paper. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 1 hour, or place in freezer for about 15 minutes.

In a small deep bowl, melt candy melts and shortening together in the microwave per candy melt package directions (typically in 30 second intervals, stirring in between).

Use a fork to dip each cake ball in the candy coating, letting excess coating drip off back into the bowl. Place on wax paper. Immediately sprinkle with a few large disc/confetti sprinkles (or additional rainbow sprinkles).
