Easter Egg Cake Truffles
- 1 prepared cake, this can be your favorite cake recipe or from a box
- 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
- 1/3 cup sour cream

- Beat together butter, sour cream, powdered sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy.
- Add frosting to cake crumbs and stir until well combined and easily moldable.
- Remove a walnut sized portion of cake mixture and roll into a shape similar to an egg. Place on parchment lined cookie sheet and continue until all done. Chill to make it easier to dip them.
- While truffles chill, melt candy coating according to package directions.
- Gently drop a truffle into melted candy coating and completely coat. Take out with a fork. Gently tap fork on side of bowl to remove excess coating. Place on a sheet of waxed paper or parchment paper and allow to set. You can decorate with sprinkles, edible markers or other colors of candy coating. Let your imagination run wild!
