Patriotic Cake Push Pops

I know I am a few days late sharing 4th of July treats. But I just have to share these cake push pops that I made for a party. Do you remember the ice cream push pops? I'm sure they still sell them but I remember them from my childhood. And now you can make cake push pops that are just as cute and delicious.


I bought the push pop molds from Etsy and have been dying for a chance to use them. I baked 2 white cakes in a cookie sheet and tinted one red and one blue. Unfortunately my blue cake was more green. And I think it was because the blue food coloring mixed with the yellow of the eggs in the cake. Regardless, these were fun to make.


I layered cake, frosting, cake, frosting, sprinkles in each mold. The molds came with a snap cap which was perfect to keep everything in place.


To eat these, you take off the cake and push up the cake and frosting!! My kids thought these were so cool. I definitely won some 'cool mom' points with this treat.


There are so many fun color/flavor combinations you could try. I'm thinking pound cake, strawberries, and whipped cream for a fun strawberry shortcake. Or chocolate cake, marshmallow fluff, and graham cracker crumbs for a s'mores pop. Or funfetti cake plus pink frosting for my daughter's next sleepover. These molds are re-useable and I plan on using them again soon!


Thanks for stopping by today!!
