Before assembling the cake push pops, use your favourite red velvet cake recipe, or a red velvet box cake mix. Prepare batter, but rather than pouring batter into one 9×13 inch pan, use either two 9×13 inch pans or one 12×18 inch half sheet pan, giving you a much thinner cake to work with. Bake cake for 10-12 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, remove from oven and cool completely in pan.
Materials you will need
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.
