Prep and make cake

Before starting, preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish with 2 tsp softened butter. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. • In a large bowl, whisk together sugar, flour, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice mix, 1 1/4 tsp baking powder, 1/4 tsp baking soda and 1/2 tsp salt. • In a medium bowl, whisk together white sugar, sour cream, egg, 6 tbsp milk and 1/3 cup oil. • Add wet ingredients to the bowl with the dry ingredients, then stir with a spatula until combined. • Transfer batter to the prepared baking dish and spread evenly using the back of a spoon or spatula. • Bake in the middle of the oven until golden-brown, 15-18 min. • Transfer baking dish to a wire rack and allow cake to cool for 5 minutes after baking.

Form truffles

• Leaving browned edges in dish, scoop cake into a medium bowl. Transfer to the fridge to cool, 5 min. (TIP: Spread cake out along sides of bowl to cool more quickly!) • Once cool enough to handle, scoop out 1 packed tbsp of cake, then squeeze until a smooth dough forms. Roll into a ball using palms. Repeat with remaining cake. (TIP: If truffle mixture is too dry to stick together, add water 1 tbsp at a time!) • Transfer cake balls to a plate, then refrigerate until ready to use.

Make frosting and finish truffles

• Place cream cheese in a medium microwave-safe bowl and microwave until soft, 20-30 seconds. • Whisk in icing sugar and 4 tbsp milk until smooth and frosting reaches a drizzling consistency. • Working one truffle a time, add to bowl with frosting. Using a fork, gently lift truffle, letting excess frosting drip off. (TIP: Lightly tap the fork on the side of the bowl if necessary!)

Finish and serve

• Using a second fork, gently push the frosted truffle onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. (TIP: If frosting becomes too thick, microwave for 10 sec and stir until smooth!) • Transfer frosted truffles to the refrigerator for 5 min. • Transfer shredded coconut to a shallow dish. • Working one truffle at a time, gently roll truffles coconut to coat. • Transfer truffles to a serving platter
