They didn't think of them either..there's a popular restaraunt chain that's been doing it for th epast few years. Little dessert shots. I worked a wedding last year where they were the hit of the reception.

THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH

every little bit counts.

how bout this idea Im thinking instead of candy bags as a giveaway these in a themed cup with some candies around them to hold them in place??

I was at first thinking of using like a cupcake bouquet or like one of those fruit baskets (ugh i cant think of the company that sells them)....but something along those lines...

any ideas would be greatly appreciated ....sorry OP if Im high-jacking your thread. icon_redface.gif

they are cute, for sure! I'm just trying to come up with a reasonable price. I won't charge $3 for a tiny bit of cake and icing, just for the novelty of it being in a push pop container. If I knew it would fit a full sized cupcake, which I'm not sure it will, I could charge to cover my expenses and make a little money. But people around here balk at paying $1.00 per cupcake (really!), and those little push pop thingies are already $.50 each, more or less. Oh well, I guess I have some thinking to do!

How do you make these? Do you have a sheet cake, and then somehow VERY carefully cut out the circular shape? I'm clueless here.

I would bake a sheet cake in a cookie pan (ala cake roll style), then turn the tube over and use it as the cutter. Then just push the piece of cake down the tube, add filling, repeat until full.

Kay,
I would make sheet cakes, then use the push-pop tube to cut out the circles of cake. The plunger would be good for pushing the cake right out into your hand.
Or you could cut the cake circle and leave it in the tube you used to cut it out and keep stacking with frosting and cake. But that would make a messy edge, which you would have to clean.
Or you could use a round cutter that's the same size as the tube to cut the cake circles.

I would just experiment to find what works best.
