Wilton piping bag & 1M tip
Snowman and snowflake stickers
Blue, silver, and white jingle bells (large)
Snowflake ribbons (thin)
1 recipe white cake *below
1 recipe coconut frosting *below

STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS

1. Tap into your inner craftista and decorate the push-up pops with fun snowflake crafts. I wrapped a thin layer of snowflake ribbon around the base of the push-up pop. Then, stickers were added and a jingle bell was hot glued to the top of the push-up pop. Repeat until all push-up pops are decorated and ready to be filled.

2. Once white cake recipe is cooled in jelly roll pan, use one push-up pop (flipped over) to cut out 2 circles of cake per each push-up pop (12 cake circles per 6 push-up pops). Place one cake circle in the bottom of each push-up pop.
