Not a summer has gone by in many years that we haven't had a box of ice cold push-ups in our freezer! Did you know that you can buy plastic push-ups to use at home? Look at these yummy cake push-ups that you can create. This would be so much fun for a birthday party, special dinner, or holiday treat! You could do trifles, puddings, flavored whipped creams, fruit, Nilla wafers, Oreos, etc. You have to buy them in bulk, so get with a group of neighbors, friends, (or sisters *hint hint*) and split an order! Check them out here:
