AHi all, I am going to be making cake pops for the first Time, I will be making 75 of them, how long will they stay fresh for? (how long can I make them before the party) also do I use the same mix as I do for cupcakes? I will. Be using a cake pop machine, I need to make 75 cake pops, 75 cupcake and a 2tier cake for Sunday, so need to start soon, thanks in advance xx :D

You can freeze the uncoated pops for quite a while, just like freezing cake layers.  Once you dip them they stay fresh for at least a week I'd say.  But I would definitely suggest against a frosting/filling mix that needs to be refrigerated because cooling/thawing pops that have been coated already can cause them to form condensation on the outside and get a little waxy.

 

I'm not sure about the mix question though.  I don't use mixes but I feel like it would be perfectly fine to use a cupcake mix.  Especially if the cake pop maker has the baking time set for you?

 

What are you coating them with?

Whoops!  Sorry, my misinterpretation there!  Your cupcake recipe should be just fine :)

 

You might find that you need to thin your melted candy with a little bit of shortening (I use Crisco).  When I use a whole bag of melts I usually add about a tablespoon, maybe even less.  Play with the consistency and do a few trial dips.  

 

As far as a time line goes they're pretty quick.  Bake one night, dip the next.
