The new Push-up Pops are based on the frozen treat popular for decades with kids. I loved how they looked, but I assumed they would be tricky to make. Actually, they are very easy to make and really don't take any expertise at all. You even use the push up container as a cookie cutter to cut out the pieces of cake and a plastic bag can be used in place of a pastry bag. The book is separated into four categories of Push-up Pops, including Cake (layers of cake and frosting) Pie (mostly layers of cookies and pie filling), Frozen, and Cookies and Candy varieties. Each recipe has the instructions on one page and a full page photo on the other, which really spotlights every scrumptious creation.
She also has ideas for themed parties and how to decorate the push up containers for different events. The stunning watermelon Push-up Pops are just three layers of ice cream/sorbet/sherbet with some mini chocolate chips sprinkled on top, but would be the hit of any summer get-together. I think that children would just love the Campfire S'mores Push-up Pops, with layers of graham cracker crumbs, marshmallow fluff and chocolate frosting -- yum! I adored every single recipe and one of my very favorites was the Wedding Cake Push-up Pops, so gorgeous!! They used a white almond flavored cake and frosting and suggest decorating them with a sticker of the couple's monogram. Those would be so fun and perfect for a wedding reception, shower, or rehearsal.
The pictures are gorgeous and ideas so inspiring. The recipes seem quite simple, many consisting of base cakes which start with a cake mix to which you add ingredients such as instant pudding mix or sour cream and bake. Then it provides a complimentary filling, such as a buttercream, and then explains how to assemble with suggested decorative embellishments. I doubt I'll actually be making any push pops but I love making trifles for office parties and this dessert would easily translate to a party size trifle rather than individual push pops, or to parfait or wine glasses for indivdual desserts. Also, they could just as easily be layered in clear pastic cups and served with a spoon for kid's parties. So what I'm trying to say, if like me, you've never heard of push pops, don't pass up this book, because if you enjoy a layered dessert , and who doesnt, you'll love this book.
