1: Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 36 mini muffin cups with cooking spray.
2: In medium bowl, beat cake mix, water, oil and egg whites with electric mixer on low speed until moistened; beat 2 minutes on high speed until well blended. Divide batter into 2 bowls. Tint 1 bowl of batter with a few drops red food color; tint other bowl with blue food color.
3: Fill 18 mini muffin cups 2/3 full with red batter. Bake about 15 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from oven. Repeat with blue batter to make an additional 18 mini cupcakes. Cool completely.
4: To assemble push-up cakes, drop 1 mini cupcake into each push-up pop container. Add generous teaspoon frosting to top of each cupcake. Top each with second mini cupcake; add dollops of frosting to tops of each. Serve.

Darlene’s Tips:  If you don’t have mini muffin pans, you could bake cakes instead and just break up the cake to make the layers. You could use whipped topping between the layers instead of frosting if you prefer. These can be frozen until ready to serve. They won’t take long at all to thaw. Top with sprinkes of your choice if you like!
