Key Lime & Coconut Cream Pushpops & a Duncan Hines Sweet Treat Giveaway!


My site got a little makeover over the weekend ! Do you like?  I’m loving the fresh, clean look! I’ve still got some tidying up to do but once that’s all done I’ll go over some of the new features with you:) But for today I’ve got a fun recipe and a fun little giveaway for you….

My friends at Duncan Hines sent me some samples of their new Spring Frosting Flavor Creations Mix-ins–Key Lime Pie, Peaches and Creme, Fruit Punch, and Pink Lemonade.  Have you tried any of their mix-ins before? They have some pretty fun flavors and make it super easy to take a normal cake (or cupcakes) and add some fun flavor to them.  Can’t you just see kids going crazy for Fruit Punch and Pink Lemonade flavored frosting piled high on a cupcake? Every kids’ favorite drink flavors in a cupcake!

I tried all four of the new spring flavors and my favorite was definitely the Key Lime Pie.


I used it to whip up these fun Key Lime & Coconut Cream Pushpops that are just perfect for spring.  They have that taste of warmer weather we’re all ready for right now.  They kind of whisk away to the tropics with each bite:)

Wilton provided me with a Whoopie Pie Pan and the pushpop set that made these super easy to make! I used a Classic Yellow Cake Mix to make the cake layers, and in between the cake is layers of sweet coconut cream cheese filling, topped with the Key Lime Pie frosting and little bit of toasted coconut.


These spring flavors are available for a limited time only so scoot on off to the store to find some! And stay tuned for some more fun {and I mean really fun} with Duncan Hines!

Key Lime & Coconut Cream Pushpops
Write a review
  1. 1 pkg Duncan Hines Yellow Cake Mix (along with water, oil and eggs required on package instructions)
  2. 1 can Duncan Hines frosting creations Frosting Starter
  3. 1 packet Duncan Hines frosting creations Key Lime Pie flavor mix in
  4. 1 (8 0z) package cream cheese, soft
  5. 1 1/2 tsp coconut extract
  6. 3 tbsp sugar
  7. 1/2 cup shredded coconut, toasted
  8. 12 Plastic Pushpop container
  1. Preheat oven to 325. Spread shredded coconut out evenly on a cookie sheet and bake for 5-8 minutes or until golden (do not burn). Remove coconut and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine cake mix, water, oil and eggs. Spoon a heaping teaspoon into each slot of the Wilton whoopie pie tin. Bake for 9-10 minutes. Remove mini cakes from pan and let cool. (You need 36 mini cakes to make the pushpops, but I like to have a few extra to work with. One cake mix will make over 46 mini cakes.)
  3. In another bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth and creamy. Beat in sugar and coconut extract.
  4. Mix the Key Lime Pie frosting flavor creation packet into the Duncan Hines frosting flavor Starter Frosting.
  5. To assemble, place a cake layer at the bottom of each pushpop container and pipe a layer of coconut cream cheese filling on top. Duplicate another cake layer and another layer of cream cheese. Top with another cake layer then pipe the Duncan Hines Key Lime Pie frosting on top. (You'll end up with three cake layers, two cream cheese layers, and one Key Lime Frosting Layer on top). Sprinkle toasted coconut on the top of each pushpop.
  1. **with any extra mini cakes and frosting you can make some tasty mini whoopie pies!!
boys ahoy
