Snowball cake

D P Recipe

By D P dp_23943


My husband loves Hostess snowballs,and this cake tastes about as close to one as I could find.:-)


1 c
4 tsp
knox gelatin
2 1/2
sticks of margarine ( 20 tablespoons)
4 tsp
1/4 tsp
6 c
marshmallow creme
2 c
shredded coconut
drops red food coloring
devils food cake mix

Directions Step-By-Step

Mix devils food cake as directed on box. Bake in a greased and floured glass pyrex bowl on 350 degrees for about 45 to 55 minutes or till toothpick comes out clean.Cool in bowl for ten minutes and then invert on to wax paper. When completely cool,put back into cleaned glass bowl.
Cut opening in bottom of cake to put in marshmallow filling. I just cut a circle (save that) and then took some of the cake out and ate it. HaHa! Fill with some of the marshmallow creme( I put about a cup or more) and replace circle of cake you cut out.Invert cake onto a cake plate,and then frost with remaining marshmallow topping and coat with coconut.
For marshmallow filling: Dissolve knox gelatin in water for five minutes in a bowl. Then microwave it for about 40 seconds untill it starts to boil around the edge. Cool to the touch. Add butter,salt and vanilla. Wisk in marshmallow creme. Refrigerate untill its of spreading consistency.Fill Inside as talked about above and then frost outside of cake and cover with coconut which has been colored with the two drops of red food coloring. Voila! Snowball cake! :-)
