Begin by adding the butter and cream cheese to a large mixing bowl. Using an electric mixer on medium speed, combine until smooth and creamy. Next, add the cake mix and both sugars mixing on medium speed until completely combined.
Now lay out a large piece of plastic wrap. Using your hands, shape the mixture into a ball and place it in the middle of the plastic wrap. Bring up all 4 corners of the wrap to form the ball tighter and cover it completely. Place into the freezer for 2 hours.
