How to Store Your Copycat Starbucks Cake Pops
Find yourself with a few cake pop leftovers? Here’s how to store cake pops properly so they don’t go bad.
It may sound tedious, but you are going to want to individually wrap each cake pop in plastic wrap. This helps to retain the moisture in the cake pop so they don’t dry out in the fridge.
Once the copycat Starbucks cake pops are wrapped properly, store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. They should last in the fridge for about one week, but if you need a bit more time, you could also store them in the freezer as well for up to a month. To defrost, unwrap the cake pop and let it sit out at room temperature before devouring.
