Can you freeze cake balls? I am making a cake this weekend and want to use the left over for cake balls for an event on the 18th? has anyone froze them before? were they covered in the candy melts when you froze them? or did you freeze them and then cover them after they were defrosted? Also if you freeze them, what is the best way to avoid freezer burn or having them turn out yucky? How long will they keep in the freezer?Thanks!

I freeze the plain cake, wrapped in several layers of saran wrap and then put in a freezer bag. I actually turn them into cake balls within a day or two of the event so that they are fresh.

Me too! I form them, insert tooth pic, freeze them to firmness, dip them, remove tooth pic and cover hole then re-freeze them till firm. I only have made them for family or DH to eat, so there are usually lots of leftovers in the freezer, but they always taste great to me.

freeze them before dipping. chocolate or candy melts might behave weirdly in drastic temperature changes. they could develop those weird spots ... not sure what the term is, but i've had cake balls in the fridge get those.

I freeze them covered in chocolate, but they are wrapped in foil all ready to go!

The taste and look fine icon_smile.gif

And the weirs spots is "blooming". Which wont happen if they are wrapped

If they bloom, just use a small sieve and dust them with either cocoa powder or confectioner's sugar. I freeze them all the time.

I have frozen it at all the stages except after dipped. I have frozen cake/leftover cake, frozen the mixture, and I've frozen the balls. Just depends upon how much time that I've had. I take it out a couple of days before and let it thaw in the fridge.

The cocoa powder or confectioners sugar will cover up any bloom spots that don't dry and go back to the original color.

I prefer mine straight from the freezer. They are so yummy ice cold. icon_smile.gif
