i am in the middle of making cake pops, and they won't be delivered until friday. i've read that they keep for 5 days out of the refrigerator and up to 3 weeks in the refrigerator.

here's my question do they need to be covered in the refrigerator or not??

please help me! i have so much to do that i don't have time to make a mistakeicon_smile.gif!!!

THANKS!!!

Definitely cover the cake pops. I cover everything so that items don't pick up flavors from other foods.

I put mine in a ziploc bag and store in fridge until I'm ready to roll them.

Still no picture. Did you already dip them in melts? If so, no need to refrigerate. If you didn't dip them, just cover them securely so they don't dry out. I usually roll and dip mine the day before I need them. I've had a "mushed" batch in the fridge for a week now that I'm rolling tomorrow night.

Making cake pops 6 days in advance doesn't sound good to me. I wouldn't want something that was a week old would anyone else?

well, i did it because i have two other cakes i'm working on, and b'c i read on this message board that it was okay to do so! that's why i'm asking about refrigeration anyway! plus, i have three little boys tooicon_smile.gif. the cake pops will be fine as have all of the other cakes that have been made and decorated days in advance. what about those cake pops that are made but not covered and sit in the frig for almost 3 weeks what's the difference???

I bag each one in a little ziploc baggie and leave them at room temperature. My husband has eaten one at the 7 day mark (only because of Passover). He says the texture is a bit mushier but the flavor is the same. I would not be comfortable with someone eating one after that.

There's the condensation issue to consider and the possibility of odor absorbtion.

I have heard that dipped cakepops will last up to three weeks in the fridge but not undipped...

With that being said, yours are beautiful! Please let us know how they hold up!

Your cake pops are beautiful!I have never made cake pops before, but I have frozen a cake for about a week to a week and a half before I used it and the cakes turned out fine! When we cut in to it after I decorated it, it tasted like it just as fresh as any other one of my cakes. The key is to wrap them well. I think how you are putting them in the fridge will be perfectly fine! Keep up the good work! icon_smile.gif

I prefer to freeze them UNdipped, and I "flash" freeze them then just pop them in a ziplock bag icon_smile.gif If they are dipped, they are induvidually wrapped in foil or a lollipop bag (this is how I sell them).

HTH!

I do the same thing, but I just freeze them and take them out as I need them

Maybe I mis-spoke... How does one flash freeze (with or without the stick)?

OH! sorry! I lay them out on a tray, and pop it in the freezer for about an hour, then I transfer them to a bag icon_smile.gif It prevents them from freezing into a big mound lol
