Baby Shower Recipe Idea: Flower Push Pops that are Pretty & Delicious!

Flower Baby Shower Food Ideas

Flower Baby Shower Food IdeasPerfect for a butterfly- or flower-themed baby shower, these flower push pops are pretty AND delicious – and best of all, they are super easy to make! Simply buy pink cake mix (or dye white cake mix pink with food coloring as I did here), bake a batch of mini muffins, and then stack the muffins in push pop containers with a stripe of frosting in between. Top each push pop with marshmallow flowers, decorate your containers and stand with coordinating stickers, and you’ll be left with a small “garden” of treats that coordinate perfectly with your butterfly and flower baby shower decorations! Read on to learn how to make your own flower push pops.

You’ll need:


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spray mini muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. Prepare cake mix according to the box directions. If you need to dye white cake mix pink, stir in 3-5 drops of red food after the other ingredients have been added.
  4. Fill each muffin cup about 2/3 full and bake according to the box directions (about 15-20 minutes)
  5. Remove muffins from the oven and allow them to cool completely.
  6. While the muffins are cooling, decorate your push pop stand with coordinating craft paper, ribbon, and stickers. (I used name tags and round stickers from’s Playful Butterfly & Flowers baby shower theme.)
  7. Fill a piping bag with white frosting (or make your own piping bag by cutting a hole in the corner of a plastic bag).
  8. When muffins are completely cool, place a single muffin in the bottom of each push pop container and cover with a thin layer of white frosting. Repeat until your push pop containers are full.
  9. Frost the top muffin of each push pop and decorate with a marshmallow flower, made using the below directions:How To Make Marshmallow Flowers

To make the flower centers, cut mini marshmallows in half width-wise and press the freshly cut half into colored sprinkles. (The sprinkles will stick to the cut part but nothing else – genius!) Gently press a half into the center of each muffin.  

To make the flower petals, cut mini marshmallows in half diagonally. Each diagonal slice will be a single petal. Press each slice into colored sprinkles and arrange the slices around the flower center until you have a complete flower.

You can decorate each place setting with a single push pop that’s standing in a small, clay flower pot or display eight push pops in a decorated stand in the center of each party table or candy buffet. Your guests will love the look – and taste – of these adorable flower push pops!
