I need to make a fairly large ball shaped cake and I thought of using the cake pop method to help shape the cake. Can I store the cake ball in the freezer for a few weeks like I would a normal cake? Due to a lack of time, I usually bake, form and carve my cakes ahead. Is this ok to do to a cake pop? Any info on this subject would be greatly appreciated.
I'm sure it would be fine...but not sure about using the cake pop method to making a large ball cake.Not sure how that would stand up. I guess it would depend on it's size. I would consider making 2 half's (bowl shape...I use glass oven safe bowls) cakes and using that instead.
Thanks for the input I may try that. It is my first time trying a ball cake and I was worried about it keeping shape and thought the added frosting would help but maybe it wouldn't. I may need to practice a little before I need it for my dd birthday. thanks again!!
I'm with debidehm. Haven't tried making a giant cake ball, but I feel the the 2 bowl shapes would work great. If you don't have a ball shape ban, I would use 2 glass bowls.
How are you planning to decorate or frost your giant cake pop? . even in ganache I would think cake disaster when it got room temperature or was cut to serve . I think baking a ball as suggested is a better idea.
