Adjust rack to middle position and preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with oil. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (or foil).


In a large bowl, whisk together spice cake mix, sour cream, cinnamon, 1 cup water, ½ cup oil, and ½ tsp salt until smooth. Pour batter into prepared dish. Bake on middle rack until cooked through and edges are lightly browned, 25-30 minutes. Wash out bowl.


Let cake cool for 5 minutes after baking. Leaving browned edges in dish, scoop cake into clean bowl used for batter. TIP: Spread cake out along sides of bowl to cool more quickly. Once cool enough to handle, scoop out 1 packed TBSP cake; squeeze until a smooth dough forms. Roll into a 1-inch ball. Repeat with remaining cake. TIP: If truffle mixture is too dry to stick together, add water 1 TBSP at a time. Refrigerate cake truffles until ready to use.


Place cream cheese in a medium, microwave-safe bowl; microwave until soft, 20-30 seconds. Whisk in half the powdered sugar until smooth and frosting reaches a drizzling consistency.


Working with one cake truffle at 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). Using a second fork, gently push the frosted truffle onto prepared baking sheet. TIP: If frosting becomes too thick, microwave for 10 seconds and stir until smooth. Repeat as necessary. Refrigerate frosted truffles for 5 minutes.


Evenly sprinkle frosted truffles with coconut; gently roll to coat. Transfer to a platter. Dust with remaining powdered sugar and serve.
