Layer on the Fun with Easy-to-Make Easter Treat Pops

March 29th, 2013 by Sara Casey

Easter is just around the corner and what better way to get excited for it than baking! I will be visiting my family in Michigan for the holiday and was asked to bring dessert this year. After years of having the same old pies and cookies, I thought it was time to spice it up a bit with Wilton’s new Treat Pops, decorated for the occasion of course.

Easter Treat Pops

Wilton’s Mini Whoopie Pie Pan works great to make the perfect size cake bites for the treat pops. I also picked up some Spring Micro Sprinkles Mix and Bunny with Jellybean Royal Icing Decorations to use as my accents.

I wanted lots of spring colors in my treat pops so I began by mixing up some yellow cake mix and various icing colors to get pastel green, peach, and purple cake batters. While my mini whoopie pies were baking, I started on the icing. Again, to get an assortment of pastel colors I made pink, yellow, and blue icings and put each in a disposable decorating bag fitted with a No. 18 Open Star Decorating Tip.

Baking Treat Pops

Once my mini pies were cool, I began to assemble the treat pops. To make things easier, I placed each treat pop stick in the matching treat pop lid so they would stand on their own. Starting with a layer of cake, I alternated colors of icing and cake until it reached the top. After making a few in this way, I began adding in a layer of sprinkles on top of the icing layers to make them even more attractive. This took only a few minutes to do.

Decorating Treat Pops

To finish it off, I put a last layer of sprinkles on top and placed a bunny icing decoration on each treat pop. I can’t wait to see what my family thinks when I show up with these! I just know my little cousins will go crazy over them.

    Super Cute!! Love the layers of fresh colors!
    Did you need grease the Whoopie Pie Pan before filling with batter?

    I made these for my Sunday School choir kids and they loved them. They didn’t have all the fancy toppings on them, just white cake and white icing or chocolate cake and chocolate icing or some with a combination of white and chocolate together. They keep asking when they can have them again.One regular Duncan Hines cake mis make 3 pans of 24 cakes with a little batter let over.
