I'll just be using BC with water.
You can freeze them and they will last a while.

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
