I need to make 50 cake balls for my sister's birthday party next month. I'm not going to her party. She lives out of town. She's going to visit me next week and I will give the cake balls to her. She will put them in the freezer for about 2 weeks and thaw them for the party. I'm not sure if the cake balls will still look good then. Anybody has done it before? Please advice. Thank you.
In my experience, frozen chocolate will crack...
I had accidental success with frozen dipped cakeballs. On Christmas Eve, I tossed a boxful into the freezer because I wasn't sure if I'd need them. They were just for family, so I didn't care if they cracked.
Well, I totally forgot about them. LOL About 2 weeks later, I pulled them out of the freezer and they were just as perfect as the day I made them, even after thawing.
Since then, I've frozen many dipped cakeballs with the same success.
I should note that I do not use icing or coffee creamer in my cake balls. Just flavorings and melted chocolate. And, I have a commercial freezer - not frost-free.
I do it all the time, But i wrap thin each in candy foil.....
Thank you everyone. I will ask my sister to thaw them in the fridge before bring them to room temperature. Hopefully this way will prevent them from cracking and dull looking.
