Cake Mix Popsicle Recipe Notes and FAQ
Important info if your mold is plastic or metal.
If you use a plastic or metal popsicle mold, you may want to omit the whipped topping, as it’s often difficult to pull out of the mold. Instead, replace the whipped topping with heavy whipping cream or yogurt. The idea is to have 3 cups of milk, yogurt, or whipped cream to mix with the boxed cake mix.
