Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C fan forced) Line 2 large baking trays with baking paper. Remove the enclosed frosting sachet from the cake mix and reserve for another use. Place the cake mix in a large bowl with the oil, eggs and vanilla extract. Beat with a wooden spoon until combined.

Chill the mixture in the fridge for 30 minutes, or until solid enough to shape the dough. Shape the mixture into 25 walnut-sized balls (roughly 25g each), then roll in the caster sugar. Place onto the lined baking trays, making sure there is room in between each ball for them to expand when baked.

Bake in the oven for 15 minutes, or until set. Cool for 1 minute, then remove from the baking trays and leave to cool completely on wire racks. Dust with icing sugar to serve.

Expert Tips

To make chocolate chip cookies, stir 100g dark chocolate chips into the dough before chilling.
