Making cake pops today for a wedding on Saturday and I'm going to freeze them. I make cake pops all the time but this is the first for freezing them. How long before should I pull them out of the freezer so they're thawed for Saturday night? TIA!

Are you freezing them coated/decorated? Just wondering because if you are, I would mostly be worried about the chocolate coating cracking when you take them out of the freezer and hit room temperature. Maybe you could do a couple as a test first. If you are freezing them uncoated, they will defrost fully in around half an hour max (unless you happen to make them baseball size!)

I was going to freeze them coated. And the only reason I want to freeze is because I don't have enough room in my fridge. Just bought a new stand up freezer and there's more than enough room in there. I'm just not sure I want to leave them at room temp for 5 days.

Just put them in an air-tight container and keep them in a cool place, like the basement. Cake pops are good for 2-3 weeks if they are protected. No need to freeze them.

The cakepops will crack when they come to room temp if you freeze them.

I learned that the hard way last week, as the cake thaws, liquid/condensation is released and the cake expands, cracking the coating.

Do you put them in an air tight container after you roll them or after you dip them and let them dry?
