Creating Push-Up Cakes

Assembling Push-up Tubes

To assemble your push up tubes, join the stick and the disc together, and then insert them into the main piece. After filling tubes with choice of food products, cover with lid.

How to Create Push-up Cakes

• Simply use a circle cutter to cut out little cake rounds from a cake layer or two. Or use mini muffin pan to bake little cakes.

• Then layer these little bite size pieces with any combination of fruit, puddings, icings, or fillings of your choice. Use a decorating bag and pastry tube to layer the icings, puddings or fillings. This works well to get down inside the cylinder.

• Experiment with your favorite flavor combinations…. Like pound cake, strawberries & whipped cream, chocolate cake and chocolate mousse with sprinkles, chocolate cake and mint flavored pudding with chocolate chips, lemon cake with lemon pie filling and raspberries. The ideas are endless. Top with a swirl of icing, and candies, melted chocolate pieces, nuts, fruit or any kind of decoration to match your party theme.

• Display these in a styrofoam base and decorate with ribbon or festive wrapping paper.

• The cake push-up cylinders do have lids, and so if you need to travel with them, you can attach the lids and do your final toppers when you arrive!

This new fad is a lot of fun, just remember to "push up" gently or you may have raspberries flying across the floor!
