You can freeze them and they will last a while.

Also Check out this thread http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=658476&postdays=0&postorder=asc&&start=0

Its 75 pages of everthing you ever wanted to know about cake balls!

Thanks. I've already read the whole thread before but wasn't paying attention to that, so I don't recall and I hate to re-read the whole thread (for obvious reasons!)

You keep them in the freezer after they've been coated?

I leave uncoated truffles in my freezer for up to 2 months in a ziplock with no problems. I have never tried freezing coated ones though. I just pop them out of the freezer onto a toothpick, swirl in chocolate, leaving a small exposed portion at the toothpick for the truffle to expand when thawing and stick it into styro. HTH

I have to make 75 and a 3 tiered cake for Saturday. I'm thinking of time on Sat. and Friday and hoping to do the cake balls Wed or Thur.

I certainly would make them up ahead of time. I think they can set out a few days with no problems since they are covered in chocolate without sacrificing quality. Good luck icon_smile.gif
