OK, so I was not a fan of cake, I am a HUGE fan! They are my new "best Seller". My question is, how long do they keep and how do I store them? Up until now, I just make them to order, no storage. Just make and sell. Thanks for the help!

I think it really depends on your recipe. Some people use creamer, some use buttercream and some don't use a binding agent at all (their cake is moist enough they just make balls out of it).

Can you share with us what you're using for your recipe and then maybe we can help with a shelf life.

I make containers of different cakeball mixtures and keep them refrigerated..then it is cold and ready to go with orders....i have made them ahead of time and kept them in containers in the refrigerator for weeks and everyone loves them...i just use any flavor canned frosting and a cakemix to compliment that flavor....

Thank you so much for the help. I make my cake balls with frosting. Can you freeze the balls (for like a week) before they get dipped?

I have been making cake balls now for 8 yrs. They store well made and frozen for a good month.
You can keep them in the fridge for a week if they have been dipped in chocolate.
You can keep them on the counter for a couple of days and it does not affect the flavour at all. I usually always have some leftovers on the counter that my kids eat them until they are all gone. My neighbours stand in line for left overs too and they eat the ones that are more then one week old.
If you package them properly they last a long long time.
