With 4th of July around the corner, I’m getting really excited! I’m headed back to San Diego for a family reunion with people I don’t see very often. Plus, there will be a pool and BBQ, which is really all I want for 4th of July. Oh, and hopefully fireworks.
Anyway…what do you bring to a 4th of July BBQ? Dessert! At least that’s what I bring because, let’s face it, that’s pretty much all I can make. These cute and delicious patriotic berry pound cake push pops are a great individual treat so you don’t have to worry about trash or cutting anything up. These push pop containers are pretty easy to find these days.
Plus, I made these the easy way with premade angel food pound cake and made the whipped cream from scratch. With some cut up strawberries and blueberries, these are quick and easy to whip up.
- One loaf of pound cake (I purchased mine premade)
- Strawberries (or raspberries)
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1/2 cup sugar
- Push pop containers
Lay out 1/2-inch slices of pound cake (I used angel food cake), and use the open end of the push pop to cut out circles in the cake. Place one piece on the bottom.
Make the whipped cream by whipping the heavy cream on high while gradually adding the sugar until peaks form in the cream. Layer the whipped cream after the cake, and top with blueberries and sliced up strawberries. Then add another thin piece of cake, with a layer of whipped cream and top it off with additional berries.
To eat cake push pops, you just use the bottom stick to push up the cake, whipped cream and berries in order to eat them. Click the tops onto the push pops and serve on a tray for a great but light treat your guests with love. This way the cake is self-serve and the perfect size. Just remember to let everyone know not to throw away the plastic containers! Enjoy!
