What the heck are Push-Up Pops, anyway?

Individual Party Desserts in a Push-Pop Mold

Push-up Pops, also commonly known as "Push Pops" after a type of novelty candy, are dessert treats (frozen or no) that you make in a single-serving plastic mold.

The special clear push pop containers have a plunger on the bottom, so you can eat the dessert with no fork or spoon - and no mess.

Just push in the plunger and the dessert rises up out of the plastic tube!

Almost any kind of dessert can be made as a push pop, from layered cheesecakes to strawberry shortcake to Jello dessert concoctions to frozen-juice pops for kids and adults alike.

Push pop containers come with lids so you can take them along to a party with no mess, no spills - and the dome-shaped lids leave space enough for a dollop of whipped cream or a festive a swirl of frosting. The party dessert ideas are unlimited!

Push-Up Pops Recipe Book

This is the famous first idea-and-recipe book ever dedicated to the culinary art of the push-up pop cake. Push-Up Pops is called a "must-have book for party lovers" by Tori Spelling, who almost single-handedly brought the "push pop" back into vogue when she raved over the pink Sprinkle push cakes served at her daughter Stella's second birthday party. Spelling's review? "Genius idea!" she said.

The clear push-up pop cake stand comes packed flat, covered with a protective white peel-off sticker to keep it from getting scratched in shipping. To put it together, you just slide one upright piece into the other, then lower the tiers down onto it in order of size, the largest tier first. When your party or reception is over, just reverse the process to disassemble your serving display stand again, for easy storage.

Best Buy, Top Value - Combo Set - 18 Push Pop Containers and Stand

Now, this is a practical idea! A simple stand can be darned handy in the kitchen while you're doing the assembly, as well on the dessert table if you decide not to use the lids to make the pops all non-spill portable - say, for recreating some of the real fancy-doodle "cake shooters" or "cupcake pops" you see around the blogs, topped off with eye candy like a big swirl of whipped cream and one huge perfect berry, or maybe a candy figure for a holiday theme.

It's hard to see in the picture, but the holes in the stand are staggered instead of all lined up with each other - the better to show off your pops!
