Funfetti Cake Cheese Ball

This Funfetti Cake Cheese Ball is a delicious dessert cheese ball that tastes just like cake.

A few weeks ago we had some friends over and I wanted to make a really great dessert appetizer.  One of my favorite appetizers that I have made is a Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake Cheese Ball.  I decided to make a different version of the Cheese Ball, using Funfetti Cake.  This would be a great appetizer for a birthday party, it looks really festive and is a really fun appetizer.
All of our friends loved this dessert Cheese Ball (the cheese is cream cheese).  It tastes fantastic and tastes just like cake, in a dip form.  My friend commented that it tasted just like the Dunkaroos dip.  I remember Dunkaroos from when I was little, it was a little snack pack of cookies and a dip that tasted like cake.  I used to get them in my lunch box all the time.  It used to be one of my favorite snacks.  This dip tasted just like Dunkaroos, so if you want to reminisce  this would also be a great snack.
This Funfetti Cake Cheese Ball tasted amazing.  It tasted great with Vanilla Wafers.  It can also be served with graham crackers or fruit. I really liked that you can make this the night before and have it ready for the party the next day.  You can’t go wrong with an appetizer that tastes like Cake!!
Funfetti Cake Cheese Ball

Funfetti Cake Cheese Ball


  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups funfetti cake mix, dry
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup rainbow jimmies (sprinkles)
  • Vanilla Wafers, graham crackers, fruit, or other cookies for dipping


  1. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese and butter together until combined. Then add in the Funfetti cake mix, sugar, and powdered sugar and beat until combined.
  2. Place the mixture on a large piece of plastic wrap. Bring up all the corners of the plastic wrap and wrap into a ball. Freeze the ball for about 1 1/2 hours or until it is firm enough to keep its shape.
  3. Place the rainbow jimmies on a flat plate and roll the unwrapped cheese ball in the jimmies. Make sure to press the jimmies into the cheese ball until it is fully covered.
  4. Place the ball on a serving dish, cover with plastic wrap and freeze the cheese ball for another 2 hours or overnight. If frozen overnight, thaw for 20-30 minutes before serving. Serve with Vanilla Wafers, graham crackers, fruit, or other cookies.

  1. Definitely pinning this to try, it looks amazing! Thanks for sharing. I’m going to have to check out that chocolate peanut butter cheese ball as well!!

  2. Can this be made with a greek yogurt substitute? In other words, can it be made a little healthier? Considering I’ll be making this for my engagement party, the dreaded wedding diet has begun =(

    • Congratulations on your engagement! I have not tried to make this healthier , but I think there is a few ways you can. You can try to substitute something for the butter. You can also try to use healthier cream cheese. Potentially fat free cream cheese or neufchatel cheese. You could try greek yogurt but I think you would need some sort of cheese as a base. You also may be able to take out the sugars if you don’t care about it being as sweet. The blog Cupcakes and Kale Chips made another cheese ball healthier using chick peas. That would be another idea you could do and adapt it for this recipe. Let me know if you need any more help and if you try to make it healthier, please let me know how it turned out.

  3. Oh My Word!! This tastes as good as it looks!! Well, the only thing that I forgot to put in was the sugar. Being made without sugar, it tastes just fine! I also used neufchatel cheese as it is the only cream cheese we eat. As for the sprinkles that were to go on it, I used nonperiles, not jimmies. I would strongly suggest that you use jimmies, if you don’t want the cheese ball to be crunchy on the outside. I will be making this dessert more often!! Thanks so much Alyssa!! Now i definitely have got to go and make more of these!

  5. Hi Alyssa ,Wow, what a fun recipe, I really love the flavors Funfetti and cake batter, I actually have a board on Pinterest dedicated just to cake batter and funfetti recipes!!! I signed up for your news letter, because I am an advid reader of your blog, I really enjoy it!!! Thank you for your amazing talents, and best of luck to you!!!

  6. I made this last night and it was fantastic!!!!!! Very colorful, tasty, and easy to make!!!!! The only bummer was that I didn’t read the directions ALLLLL the way through and I attempted to make this one hour before my event. I am NOT sure what it tastes like frozen over night and why that is necessary, but it tasted wonderful placed in the freezer for only one hour. LOVE your photos of it too. Very visually pleasing to my eyes.

  7. This looks delicious! I’m on a sugar fast right now so it will be awhile before I get to try it, but I am going to make it for some upcoming get-togethers I have planned. Thanks for sharing!

  25. Was delicious! Tastes just like the cake batter ice cream from Coldstone. Let me put it this way… at Easter dinner my 3-year-old nephew ran off with it and hid outside eating it with a spoon. The adults were upset there wasn’t any left for them to take home.
