I am making the bride and groom cake pops for an upcoming wedding, and I am wondering how far in advance can I make the cake pops and still have them fresh? I have 200 to make, plus the wedding cake and the grooms cake, and don't want to do all of this at the same time.
I won't be using the machine because I want them a bit bigger than what the machine make.
Thanks for your help!
I've made them in advance and put them in the freezer for two weeks and never had any problem with freshness at all. I haven't tried to freeze them for much longer than that.
I know mine last at least a week, they've never been around long enough to last longer than that, they get gobbled up lol. I use a wasc (different flavors) and homemade all butter bc w/ heavy cream. I also dip in a ganache. I'm adding all that because my ingredients add a lot of moisture so I'm not sure if other recipes last as long. I'd be interested to see what other people say...
Dani, do you freeze just the cake pop or do you freeze it with the chocolate on it and decorated?
wait, there is a cake pop machine???
From what I can tell, the cake pop machine basically makes little round cakes, much like doughnut holes. So they're not technically cake pops, at least not the ones that use crumbled cake and frosting mixed together. The machine bakes them in a round shape, and I guess you would dip them in chocolate to make a baked cake pop.
