Over the past week I have had to describe what Cake Push Pops are quite a few times. I must admit I asked “What the?” late last year. I thought the cake decorating teacher meant Cake Pops… but no, she meant Cake Push Pops. So here are some examples to show you!
First off, to avoid confusion these are Cake Pops. Little balls of cake on a stick. I haven’t made any yet because they look fiddly! And also you don’t get much cake! hehe
For Christmas last year we made some Cake Push Pops in cake decorating class and it was so much fun! And the possibilities are endless. The Push Pops are made in a plastic container (I saw these in Spotlight the other day, or try My Delicious cakes in Bibra Lake).
You put in 3 layers of cake in the containers, with cream between layers and cream and decorations on top! As easy as that!
To eat the Push Pops, you slowly push the stick up and the first layer comes out.
For the Christmas Cake Push Pops we also put Christmas sprinkles at each layer and you could put anything in the cake layers – chocolate chips, small marshmallows or even fruit! Anything goes! We also decorated the containers with ribbons, wrapping paper and stickers. We just used glue sticks and they washed off okay in hot water so you can use the containers again.
For our Easter Cake Push Pops we kept it a little more simple and just used coloured Dream Whip.
I hope you have enjoyed your Easter weekend with your family and friends. We have one more Easter date – a BBQ at my sister’s. And guess what I am making? Yep, Cake Push Pops! I’ll try and so a quick Easter post tomorrow and show them to you.
