so I wanted to give cake pops a go, but didn't want to spend alot of money so I did like bakerella's tutorial and went with cake mix and a can of frosting. I bought the duncan hines red velvet and cream cheese and is it just me or does it in no way compare to home made? Is the bad taste a duncan and hines thing or just a canned frosting thing in general?

When I make cake balls I use a box mix, since it crumbles so nicely, But I always mix it with homemade frosting, either buttercream or cream cheese.

Canned icing is foul!

adventuregal...do not use the amount Bakerella suggests, I think she says to use almost an entire can of frosting. I think it makes it too gooey. I use a few tablespoons (maybe a 1/4 cup), you want it moist but still firm enough so the balls hold their shapes. It is better to start with less frosting and add more if needed.
