Birthday Cake Freezer Pops

On my quest to find birthday cake ice cream—my favorite flavor—I came up with these easy ice pops. Now, instead of going to the store whenever a craving hits, I just head to my freezer. —Dawn Lopez, Westerly, Rhode Island

    This is another recipe I remember from my childhood. We made these at 4-H camp. My boys love changing up the flavors of pudding.
