Ok so I decided for my husband's Christmas party I'm going to make cake balls to give as a little gift to each of his employees. Should I individually box them or should I put them on a platter and let them pick their own. I'm new to making these so any ideas and tips would be helpful.

If they are as a gift and not just food for the party I would box them, maybe to a box.

Definately box them.

You could also do cake pops and wrap them individually in bags. I think that would be less expensive than the boxes. Here's a link to a site with cake pops:

You could display them on a styrofoam cone. That way everyone could see your handiwork and still get to choose which cake pop the want. Here's a link to instructions for that:

Then you could customize it to the holiday with different ribbons. You could also just buy flat discs of styrofoam and decorate those to use in your display. Just some more options for you.
