If you’re looking for a standout dessert for the next family gathering, birthday party or holiday celebration, look no further. Easy to make and fun to eat, Treat Pops offer a new twist on sweet treats and add a pop of color to any occasion.
“There are no rules when it comes to Treat Pops,” said Nancy Siler, vice president of consumer affairs at Wilton. “Kids and adults alike can express their creativity by creating layers of sweetness with cake, icing, sprinkles, edible decorations, fresh fruit and more in a reusable, clear container that lets you see the fun inside.”
Let the ideas pop into your head with these tips:
• Easy as Pie: Bake your own cake layers or use vanilla wafers if you are short on time. Fill a reusable Treat Pop container by alternating cake, icing and seasonal fruit for an easy stackable sweet treat.
• Standing Ovation: Turn the lid upside down and it doubles as a stand so your Treat Pops can be displayed and decorated in a variety of ways — passed on a festive tray, marking each place setting, or perched playfully in a container on a dessert table.
• Rainbow of Color: Personalize Treat Pops for any celebration with colorful icing, and add whimsy with Wilton’s customized labels, decorative pix and toppers.
• Universally Fun: Surprise guests with a Treat Pop favor the next time you host; your guests will enjoy the edible takeaway as they push up layers of flavor and fun.
