Bake 30-35 minutes for round pan; 35-40 minutes for sheet pan, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan ten minutes; remove from pan to cooling grid and cool completely. Divide cake in half; freeze one half for future use.
In large bowl, use hands to crumble cake until no large chunks remain. Add icing; mix with fingers until well combined. Form mixture into cake balls. Chill in refrigerator at least two hours.
