Recipe: Red velvet cake push pops
Materials you will need
- 16 push pop containers
- A push pop container stand
- Cream cheese frosting in a piping bag fitted with a star tip
- Heart sprinkles or sanding sugar
To assemble cake push pops
1 Using the push pop container as a cookie cutter, cut out circles of cake. You will need 3 cake circles for each push pop, which is a total of 48 cake circles. The circle will easily slide out of the pan and into the top of your push pop.
2 Once circles are cut, push one cake circle into the bottom of each push pop container with your fingers. Make sure it is pushed all the way to the bottom.
3 Pipe in a dollop of cream cheese icing, enough to cover the perimeter of the cake circle but not too much that you won't have room for the remaining cake and frosting layers.
4 Repeat with additional cake layer and icing until you have a total of three cake layers and three layers of frosting, ending with the frosting on top.
5 Top with sprinkles or sanding sugar and place the push pop cap on top.
