Red Velvet Truffle Stuffed Funfetti Cupcakes

I know it may seem little late to post a Christmas recipe if anyone would want to make these this holiday season. But these are easier than they appear! In fact, they are the perfect last minute dessert to make if you were invited to another party without advanced notice. Using a store-bought holiday Funfetti cake mix, complete with frosting and sprinkles, the hardest part is putting the truffles in the middle!

Ok ok I have to admit, these were easier for me to tackle than I suppose they will be for you because I have had the truffles made and frozen in my freezer since I made the creme brulee red velvet cupcakes (oh yea these cupcakes were totally pre-meditated). But thankfully cake balls can also be made from a cake mix ;-).

And if I couldn’t have been more prepared for these cupcakes already, I recently won a giveaway from Gina (SP Cookie Queen) which included an adorable Christmas cupcake kit. The liners and toppers you see are from that kit – thanks again Gina!


Makes 18 cupcakes


1-18.9 oz. package Pillsbury Funfetti Holiday cake mix, plus required ingredients on box

18 red velvet cake balls, non-coated and frozen

1-15.6 oz. package Pilsbury Funfetti Creamy Supreme Holiday frosting

Assorted holiday sprinkles


  1. Prepare cake mix as directed on the box. Line cupcake pan with cupcake liners, and fill each 2/3-3/4 of the way with cake mix. Place one red velvet truffle in the center of each cupcake (it will sink in while cooking). Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until the cupcakes just start to turn golden. Allow to cool completely on a wire rack before frosting.
  2. When the cupcakes have cooled, frost as desired and top with sprinkles (I dipped mine straight into the sprinkle for full coverage). Feel free to add more decorations if you have time to kill and then enjoy!
