Push-up Pops Week - 4th of July Push-up Pops
Welcome to Push-up Pops Week! To find out more about the book Push-up Pops by Courtney Dial, go to our previous post here.
Today we have a 4th of July Push-up Pop recipe by Kate, from Grin and Bake It!
Step 1: Clean out push-up containers and dry thoroughly.
Step 2: Put push-up pieces together.
Step 3: Make your favorite cake in a 9” X 13” pan. Cool cake completely. Using a circle cookie cutter, or the round part of the push-up pop to cut out cake circles.*
Step 4A: Brush cake crumbs off of cake circles and freeze in an airtight container, layering circles with waxed papers. Freeze until firm (1 hour or even overnight is fine).
Step 4B: Remove cake circles from the freezer. Use a serrated knife to cut cake circles in half.
Step 5: Prep the icing. You can make it from scratch, but store-bought works just as well. To obtain dark colors, use gel colors, such as Americolor or Wilton. If you don’t have piping bags, use a Ziploc bag and cut a small piece off of the corner to pipe frosting. Put push-ups together alternating between a layer of cake and a layer of icing.
