Patriotic Push-up Cake Pops
Author: 
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 16 Pops
 
Ingredients
  • 1 Baked red velvet cake*, cooled (boxed, or recipe of choice)
  • 1 Can of white frosting
  • Piping bag with round tip OR ziploc bag with corner snipped off
  • Reddi-wip
  • Red and blue sprinkles
  • 16 Push-up pop containers
Instructions
  1. Using a cake pop container as a template, cut out as many circles of cake as you can. Slice the circles in half, horizontally, to make the layers thinner. *Another way to get thinner layers is to pour the cake batter into 2 pans before baking, making the cake much thinner (note: it will cook faster).
  2. Spoon frosting into piping bag with tip OR into ziploc bag, and snip off one corner.
  3. Place 1 cake circle into an assembled cake pop container, and gently push it all the way to the bottom.
  4. Pipe a swirl of frosting on top of first cake layer, then top with another layer of cake. Repeat with last layer of frosting and cake.
  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 with all cake pops.
  6. Dispense a swirl of Reddi-wip on each cake pop, and top with sprinkles
  7. Serve immediately.
