I have a order for 3 dozen cakepos for next weekend.I kinda wanted to get a jump on them and get them out of the way.Is a week too long in advance to make these,coat them and store them in the fridge?

They are probably going to be just fine in the fridge for a week. I make cake balls for work one time and there was one left that was in a tupperware container in the refrigerator at got lost in the shuffle and was found....I kid you not...4 weeks later. I was like icon_surprised.gif as I watched my co-worker pop it into her mouth tapedshut.gif . She swears, it tasted just fine, as good as the first time around. I monitored her throughout the day and she showed no signs of getting ill from the month old cake ball.
So that being said, I think just a week should be no problem for your cake pops icon_biggrin.gif

I've read that they stay good at room temperature for up to 2 weeks. You can also freeze them, although they will probably crack when thawed if you do icon_smile.gif

i would be somewhat cautious on part of this. I would probably make the cake ball part and then freeze it. Then the day before due i would cover them, less chance of anything happening to the covering in the fridge or freezer this way.

I have made them into the balls and kept those frozen. I have also covered them and froze them. No cracking when thawing out. You should be good. Just make sure to get all areas covered or the cake will ooze out of any little hole when thawing!

I've frozen them all decorated with no problem whatsoever.
