Layer on the Flavor with Ombre Treat Pops

August 30th, 2013 by Beth Veltman

Treat Pops are still hot! Wilton has made this trend easy and convenient by creating Treat Pops containers and stands. And let me say – they really are easy to bake and assemble. They’re also convenient because the sealed containers help the pops stay fresh longer than cupcakes, they travel well, and are easy for guests to grab and go!

I created a natural ombre look for my Treat Pops by dividing a batch of butter cake batter into 3 portions. I set aside the first portion, flavored the second portion with 1 tablespoon of cinnamon, and the third portion with 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder. (Hint, this would also work with vanilla cake batter or any light colored batter). For the icing in between the layers, I made a batch of browned butter buttercream.

Baking in the Mini Whoopie Pie Pan is easy. Each cavity takes one quick spoonful of cake batter and only takes about 5 minutes to bake.

While the cakes were baking and cooling, I quickly assembled the Treat Pops Stand and Treat Pops Containers (setting the lids aside) and put each Treat Pop into a hole on the stand. Using a 16-inch decorating bag and 4B tip, I filled the bag with buttercream.

Once the cakes were cooled, I was ready to assemble them. I started with a quick drop of buttercream in the bottom on each treat pop and then dropped in the first layer of cake. Then I iced a layer on top of that cake and dropped in a cinnamon cake, followed with another layer of icing, and then the chocolate cake. A final swirl of buttercream on top of the stack and a sprinkle of cinnamon and cocoa powder finished each Treat Pop!

See, wasn’t that easy (and tasty)?
