carrot cake push pops

i have jumped on the push pop wagon...and i'm loving the ride.  what a unique, eye catching display for your yummies!!

Carrot Cake
3 eggs
2 cups flour, sifted
2 cups sugar
1 1/4 cups veg oil
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup shredded coconut
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup crushed pineapple, drained
2 cups raw carrot, shredded
Beat eggs well, then add the next 7 ingredients, and beat until smooth.  fold in coconut, nuts pineapple, and carrots.  pour into a greased 9x13 pan.  bake @ 350 for 50 mins.
Cream Cheese Frosting
1 stick butter, softened
6 oz cream cheese, softened
4 cups powdered sugar
2 tsp vanilla
Beat all together until smooth!

i cut my cake into 2 layers, then used a sprinkle cap to cut out circles that would fit inside the pops.
layer inside push pops and garnish with finely chopped walnuts!  then ENJOY!!
since it was easter, i used a piece of styrofoam with holes poked in it, inside a basket with easter grass in top!  SO FUN!
*you can find a case of 100 HERE  or smaller quantities HERE

  3. I had no idea they had push pop containers. That is quite possibly the coolest thing ever (I have regular Popsicle containers). Your recipe sounds delicious!
