These were well liked at my party despite looking a bit messy, though I can see why some on here didn't like them. You have to like canned frosting to like these (which I do) because that flavor comes through.
Following the advice of others and avoiding these from being mush, I used only a half can of frosting in each of my two batches (red velvet & funfetti) and I recommend doing this, as I liked the texture & wouldn't want them softer.
I followed the advice to let the cakes cool at least 30 minutes, and then refrigerated the mixed cake/frosting overnight. After making balls, I placed in freezer for an hour, and they could have even went longer.
I tried making my own coating out of white chips & crisco and chocolate chips & crisco. It was thicker than bark & I had to double it & use 6oz of melted chips. Most of my balls also were not completely covered, rather they had globs of hard coating and were not very pretty. They tasted good, but not outstanding. For the effort I had to put in and how sloppy they looked, I won't be making these again. Much easier recipes out there that taste just as good and look better!
