These patriotic themed cupcakes neatly stacked in the nostalgic push pop container are the perfect treat to bring to a picnic or BBQ, as they are kid friendly and easy to pack up for a fun on-the-go treat. Customize your cupcakes to match the theme of any holiday, coordinate school colors for a graduation, or even use your favorite layer cake recipe for a gourmet twist on a childhood favorite.
