Ingredients

Cake

  • 1 package lollipop sticks
  • 1 package Yellow Snack Cake Mix Gooddees Mix
  • 16 oz strawberries
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp granulated sweetener
  • sprinkle konjac flour xantham gum also works
  • 8-10 drops red food coloring
  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 stick butter softened
  • 1/2 cup powdered sweetener
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

Glaze

  • 1 cup Powdered Swerve
  • 4 tbsp Almond Milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 8-10 drops red food coloring

Instructions

  • Prepare cake mix as instructed.
  • While cake is baking, combine strawberries and water over medium heat in a saucepan. Cook until strawberries are softened (5 min)
  • Add sweetener, konjac flour and 5-6 drops of red food coloring and stir for about a minute.  
  • Puree strawberries in a food processor and let cool
  • In a mixing bowl, whip together cream cheese, butter, powdered sweetener and vanilla extract, then combine with the pureed strawberries. Add additional food coloring if preferred, and chill for 15-20 min.
  • When the cake has cooled, crumble it in a large bowl. 
  • In small batches, add cream cheese frosting to crumbled cake, being careful not to add too much. It should still have a cake-like texture, with just enough frosting to act as glue. Reserve leftover frosting. 
  • Using a cookie scoop (or hands), shape cake balls and place on a wax paper lined pan. Chill for 30 min. 
  • In a small bowl, mix all the ingredients for the glaze. Add food coloring for desired color.

Assemble Cake Balls

  • Dip the end of a lollipop stick into the reserved frosting and press into the flat end of a cake ball.  
  • Coat cake balls in glaze icing and then set on stand (a piece of styrofoam works great) 
  • Storing them in the fridge will allow the icing and lollipop sticks to set.
