Remember not long ago when petal cakes were blowing up Pinterest and Instagram?

Retro Rocket Popsicle Card – featuring Essentials by Ellen

Retro Rocket Popsicle Card - Essentials by Ellen Stay Cool

Remember rocket popsicles? Those red, white and blue striped ones that used to be sold via that little ice cream wagon that drove around the neighborhood? I LOVED those popsicles.
