For my daughter’s birthday I decided to make Push Pop Cupcakes. At the time that I made them, I hadn’t realized how popular they were becoming. Especially the day of my daughter’s birthday party, they were a HUGE hit! I couldn’t believe how quickly they went. I had made just enough for the kids to each enjoy. I also baked a delicious cake for the grown ups and birthday girl (chocolate cake with chocolate icing and crushed Oreos YUM)! What I didn’t anticipate was how even some of the grown ups would love the push pop containers! It was very easy to make so I decided to show you all how to make your own push pop cupcakes.
Mini Cupcake Pan or Mini Cupcakes
Push Pop Container
Pipe Bags (or freezer bags, just snip a corner for piping)
Cake Mix (whatever you like)
Frosting (any kind you prefer)
Fixings (chocolate cookie crumbs, sprinkles, mousse etc)
Here is how I make my Push Up Cupcakes:
Ok, I’m not a baker and usually don’t have time to make any of my favorite cakes. I usually buy a box of my favorite cake mix and follow the baking directions. Once they are cooled, you can punch out circles to fit the Push Up Containers (about 3″) . Or if you prefer, you can bake mini cupcakes instead and you still get the same effect. Just make sure to remove the cupcake liners. You don’t want kids eating the paper 😀
Next you stack the cake and frosting like your building a sandwich. Start with a piece of cake and end with frosting on top.
You can decorate your Push Pop Cupcake anyway you like! Finding a way to display these is a little tricky. I used a styrofoam disc (from my local craft store) wrapped the disc with some scrap ribbon using double-sided tape and covered with shredded paper!
Well that’s it, I hope you enjoyed it! If you decide to make a Push Pop cupcake please send me pics of your creations, I would love to feature some of my readers work on my blog! Thanks for stopping by the blog today!~
