Oreo Cake Push-Ups plus a Cake Push-Up Give-Away

I’ve developed quite an obsession for these cake push-up pops lately. Not only are they adorable, but they make dessert on the go simple. The last few times I made these, I put them in a Ziploc bag, stuck them in my cooler and took them to the beach and pool to share with friends. Here’s what I discovered over the past few weeks… these are a HUGE hit with the kids, they transport nicely, and there are a ton of ways to fill these ~ cake, brownies, frosting, ice cream, chocolate mousse, sprinkles…endless possibilities!

Our most recent cake push-up creation were these Cookies and Cream brownie pops for our final celebration with our neighbors before their big move. This is one of my favorite frostings and it goes perfect with the brownie bites (see recipe below). The kids bombarded me afterward begging for seconds.

A few weeks back, Kate from CupKates Event Design and I were chatting about putting together a give-away. The only problem was she was wiped out of her stock. These push-up pop containers can be hard to get your hands on. Kate is now totally restocked, and just launched the new CupKatesEventDesign website. Not only will you find these awesome push-up pop containers, but a bunch of other fabulous party items.

Here’s the great news…

Kate is giving one lucky Grin and Bake It reader $20.00 in credit to spend at her online store.

I’m guessing you love these push-up pops as much as I do… 

Hooray for push-up pops!

These are a few of my other favorites from CupKatesEvent Design…

I LOVE these cake sparklers!

These candy tubes are perfect party favors!

Frosting shots anyone?

Oreo Cake Push-ups

Make a batch of brownies in a 9″X9″ Pyrex pan. Let cool completely. Make a batch of Oreo Cookies and Cream frosting (recipe below). Use the top circular part of an empty push-up pop, to cut out brownie circles. The left-over brownies pieces can be used to make brownie pops. You can shape them into balls and freeze them in an airtight container.  Option 2 ~ Eat what remains, you know you deserve it! Layer push-up pop alternating with brownies and piping frosting until filled.  For a photo tutorial, go to this cake push-up post.

Oreo Whipped Cream Frosting  (Adapted from Bakespace.com)

1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature

2 1/4  cup confectioner’s sugar, sifted

a pinch of salt

1/3 cup whipping cream

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

½ cup crushed Oreos

Mix together butter, confectioner’s sugar, and a pinch of salt until it’s creamy. Increase your mixer speed to high and beat until its light and fluffy. Add whipping cream and vanilla. Beat until it’s smooth. Fold in crushed Oreos. Makes enough to frost 24 cupcakes.

    I love the new push pops idea! I saw the idea of putting the cakes in a glass jar with different layers and knew that wouldn’t work with children. These push pops are an answer to a prayer. I was trying to find something for our preacher’s goodbye reception using cake pops and these would be perfect, he has 9 children and they love these things. I work the the pre school group at church and these would work so well with special days for them, Christmas, Easter, Valentine’s all those times. I also work with Girl Scouts and this would work so well when we have county or troop events, the girls could even make them and sell them to raise money to help some of their community service projects, like the animal shelter that we give supplies for. What a GREAT invention. I can’t wait to order some. Thanks, Connie

    I cannot wait to make a variation of these for my best friend’s bachelorette party! The theme is pink and black zebra print, so I am going to dye the frosting pink and add zebra print ribbon on the bottom and decorate the stand accordingly!

    thank you for the amazing frosting recipie!

    I love the push pops I think they are absolutely adorable. I would use them for my wedding vow renewal instead of traditional cake. I think it would be cool to make like a jello push pop where instead of cake you use jello as the cake and cool whip as the frosting. That would be a refreshing treat for the kids during summer time.. Also I am a fan of cupkates event design

    I love the push pops! I think it would be fun to make these for a birthday party. I would love to do angel food cake with pudding/whipped cream mixture and a layer of strawberries/glaze. Just like a trifle but layer it in the push pops.

    I love the idea of cake push pops! I would use these for the holidays- for Halloween maybe using layers of chocolate cake and orange frosting. Or if I can’t wait that long, a S’mores pop using chocolate cake, ganache, graham crackers, and marshmallow frosting. Yum!

    I think the cake push-ups are really cool! As a college student, they would be perfect for small gatherings with friends like movie nights or parties. I think it’d be fun to make shortcakes and then layer strawberries, whipped cream with them for the summer. Brownies and ice cream or cookies and frosting would be really sweet too.
