Edited to add that I have had a look at that frosting recipe and for the stated cream cheese and butter quantities IMO the stated quantity (1 pound) of icing sugar would be necessary.1 pound = 454g.:-))

You can buy cans of frosting here - also, in my opinion, cakepops are awesome and delicious but are very time consuming - you could make something similar like truffles or small 'balls' etc that would take way less time but still be very sell-able.But if you're in the mood to make some, have fun!I have also used packet cake mixes to save time, and these often come with readymade icing in a packet.I just added some until I got the right consistency to roll without being too sticky.Be careful as it's easy to add too much and then you're stuck unless you've got more cake.It's helpful to make a quarter of the cake at a time, so you can see how many balls you have.You can freeze leftover cake for another time if you have too much.
