I feel silly - it's been a long day - but what are cake shooters. I am picturing desserts in the oversize shot glasses that I've seen at restaurants lately. What is done in the push-ups?

Thanks I did find them on etsy, but people seriously want an arm and a leg for them. I previously got them for $60 for 100 of them, so I have a hard time spending over $30 for 2 dozen. I was hoping someone would know a place to get a bulk order.

To answer your shooter question. Basically you form a cake in the plastic cake shooter or push pop. You can google them and see how they are. I know sprinkles does them.

I pretty much bake a cake cut circles from it, and then alternate cake, filling and icing till I reach the top.

I just did nutella ones with chocolate cake, chocolate mousse, nutella and then ferrro roche candies. They were AWESOME.

I see on that Sprinkles website that it says patent pending. Does that mean you can't make them and sell them??? (I think everyone's betting on this becoming the next "cake pop" craze, and that's why your bulk prices are going up on the push pop containers).

That would be crazy, I think. Maybe they make their own containers? And they have a patent pending on that? Those have been in use for a while. True that they were being used for cold desserts mostly. There is really nothing extraordinary about the dessert otherwise. Just a big waste of plastic. I hope they recycle.

Even here at cake central they have been made long ago. People started making them and then it kind of died down. I don't think they're huge money makers since a dollar or 50 cents of the product is what you throw out.

Yes, but <gasp> Celebrities like Tori Spelling are getting them for their 2 year old's birthday parties. If celebrities love them, I must too! lol

Sorry. Can see the huge push on their site....

Just so you know, I have not ordered from this site.

leah_s Posted 25 May 2011 , 7:17pm

Not helpful, but I HATE making these.

dimondclan Posted 22 Nov 2011 , 2:24am

I know this is very late, but www.martellatouse.com has a case of 100 push up containers for $50. maybe it will help someone in the future when they want to make these.

MissFortunate Posted 22 Nov 2011 , 2:58am

Laguna Wholesale has them

CandyLady Posted 22 Nov 2011 , 9:11pm

got mine from Martella but they were a big pain the - to make. I would never do them again.

georgethecakeguy Posted 4 Dec 2012 , 8:35pm

Deco Pac  $30.00 for 100.

karbelo Posted 24 Jan 2013 , 6:30pm

i buy my here 100 for 50.00 just shipping no tax!!! http://www.save-on-crafts.com/cakepops2.html

mrsprinkles Posted 24 Jan 2013 , 8:53pm

Hello everyone, this is Mr Sprinkles the "inventor" not of the container, but of the idea of puting cake inside of a container designed for ice cream.  Yes, the patent is pending.  That means that you can make them to sell if you want.  However you are put on notice that if the patent is granted you will have to stop selling.  If you make them for your own use you will never have anything to worry about. 

 

If the patent is not granted you can continue making them to sell with no problem.  The latest news is that the patent was rejected, but I have appealed and will not know the outcome for at least a few months. I am hopeful that the patent office will change their minds.  If they don't, that will be great for everyone that is making them now to sell.

 

However, please note that I do have the exclusive ownership of the national trade mark "cakeshooter" or "cakeshooters".  So if you are selling them, you can call them anything else except cakeshooters.  If you call them cakeshooters you are in violation of my trademark, so please stop.

AI have always detested the term "cake shooter" it goes in my head and makes me deconstruct it, find the root, combine "cake hole" (like pie hole, your mouth) and "poop chute" (you know what that is) and then the formed shape of the cake and filling or frosting when you push it out makes me think "Don't eat it, it's poop!!"

tdovewings Posted 24 Jan 2013 , 10:14pm

how exactly do you eat a cake push pop. Seems really messy without a fork. Do you eat one layer at a time? I guess I will have to find one to buy. Looks even more tedious to make than cake pops. 

costumeczar Posted 24 Jan 2013 , 10:54pm

AIf anyone wants to know what I call them feel free to PM me, since if I post it here it will offend someone and I'll probably get kicked off the site.

Annabakescakes Posted 24 Jan 2013 , 11:36pm

I have 2 good names for them "Cake Sh*tters" and "Cake Suppositories"

Dear Annabakescakes,

 

I have made 3 posts since 2008. You have made more than 1,800 since 2009.  I suggest you get a life. 

 

FYI......When CakeShooters(R)  were featured on Good Morning America last year, we got orders for 1,200 dozen in one hour. 

 

Your insults are making me cry.....all the way to the bank!!!!

Wow, you're charming! I find it hard to believe that you think you were the first person to put something in a tampon holder. But I guess the US patent office doesn't think so either. Good luck with that.

ibeeflower Posted 25 Jan 2013 , 6:37pm

Ok, I'm going to apply for a patent too. Mine is for putting cake batter in these little cups that have ridges on them. Cup+cake...cupcake! No one steal my idea! Feel free to make them and sell them but if my patent goes through you will have to pay me royalties for that.

MrSprinkles seems like kinda a jerk, huh?  You get more flies with honey than with vinegar, friend.

Note to self, include cake shooters on my list of things not to eat in public, behind bananas and sausage on a stick.

Just goes to show us all that you can't buy class and decency! I suggest you tell our moderators and other member who support this site with comments and answering questions to get a life as well. Especially the moderators :-D since their posts far out number mine.

I suggest you try one of your Cake Suppositories® to sweeten your attitude.

Corn dogs, ice cream cones and cucumbers are all on that list as well. Oh, Snickers® and Baby Ruth®.

I'm with you on no bananas in public! Also, nobody could pay me to eat a tube of cake, that's just gross.

I'm going to patent a metal ring with a metal bottom...I call it a "cake pan." That will compete with the cup+cake patent.
