I don’t know about you all but I am itching for spring. Why not bring a little spring indoors right now? Make these push pop cupcakes for your friends and family and it is sure to put a smile on their faces. These are super simple but will look like you slaved away in the kitchen all day.
Before we get to the directions for the cupcakes, you are going to need a holder to keep the containers standing upright. I have a super simple solution to make a push pop holder in minutes. Start with a photo storage box in white. Measure and mark for evenly spaced holes. The box will handle 10 of the containers.
- Push Pop Containers
- Wilton Icing Color Kit
- Little Venice Cupcake Starter Kit
- Baked Cake
- Canned or Homemade Frosting
I baked a regular boxed cake mix in three pans. This way, each layer is thinner. I colored those layers pink and purple with the Wilton food colors. If you have never used gel food coloring before, it makes a brighter and more vibrant color and is definitely required for these push pops. Use your push pop container to cut rounds of cake. Start with one round in the bottom of your container. Pipe in icing then add another round of cake. Continue until you have three rounds of cake inside your container. This should fill it to the top.
