Funfetti Cake Pudding Pops
Remember funfetti cake, also sometimes called confetti cake? How about pudding pops?
Imagine those two childhood favorites combined and you get Funfetti Cake Pudding Pops!
I had seen some funfetti pudding pops floating around pinterest, but they were all just plain pudding pops with added rainbow sprinkles.
Where was the cake?? I needed actual bites of cake in mine!
I didn’t want to bake a whole cake just to crumble it up into popsicles. Who has that kind of time?
Not me, or any other mama with kids at home this Summer all under foot!
So I whipped up a quick funfetti mug cake recipe. To dry of a cake would have not frozen as well and so I tried out a few options.
It took me a couple of tries, but I finally found the perfect moist crumb texture I needed to add to the pudding pops for freezing.
The girls and I were both gobbling up the pudding mixture and cake bites and so we only ended up with half a batch to freeze into popsicles!
With the use of the microwave and instant vanilla pudding, these Funfetti Cake Pudding Pops only take about 15 minutes of total work.
The kids can absolutely help make these and everyone will love eating them!
Watch the video below to see how quickly they come together. The hardest part is waiting the four hours for the popsicles to freeze!
- 1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour*
- 2 tablespoons Dixie Crystals Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- Pinch of salt
- 1/3 cup milk
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

- 1 (5.1 oz) box instant vanilla pudding
- 3 cups milk
- 1/4 cup rainbow sprinkles
- In a large microwave mug, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
- Make a well in center and add milk, vanilla extract, and vegetable oil. Whisk until smooth. Fold in sprinkles.
- Microwave cake for 1 minute and 30 seconds. Invert onto a plate and let cool for 5 minutes. Break apart into small pieces using your fingers, set aside.
- In a large bowl, whisk vanilla pudding and milk until smooth. Let sit for 2 minutes. Fold in rainbow sprinkles.
- Layer pudding and bites of crumbled cake evenly among 12 popsicle molds. Insert popsicle sticks.
- Freeze for 4 hours, or overnight. Let sit for 5 minutes at room temperature to easily pull from popsicle mold.
*Use a spoon to fill the measuring cup with flour until the required amount is obtained. Scooping the flour directly packs it too firmly and overmeasures the amount.
