Triple Rainbow Pushup Cakes

As prepared by Gourmet Mom,

Double Rainbows have been everywhere on Tablespoon this year; we’re crazy for them!


What better way to celebrate Tablespoon’s birthday than with Triple Rainbow Pushup Cakes?

Triple Rainbow Pushup Cakes Recipe

Cupcakes have been the rage for several years, and lately pushup Cakes have been taking the cupcake world by storm. These feature Betty Crocker Rainbow Chip Cake Mix, Rainbow Icing and Rainbow Sprinkles…a triple dose of rainbow fun!

The only trick is to find the containers. I live in a small town with no cake supply store, but if you do an internet search for “plastic push pop containers” you can find several companies with cheap shipping.

My husband also made me an inexpensive “stand” since we make these all the time now. Simply buy a 3” x 3” post from your hardware store, drill some holes halfway through, and spray paint your desired color….instant push-up cake stand!

My kids also love these because they’re so easy to make. In fact, my 7 year old put this batch together! To make, simply mix Betty Crocker Cake Mix, oil, eggs, and water according to package directions. Bake in mini muffin pans and cool completely. Add one cooled mini cupcake to each push pop container.
