- Step one - find the perfect container. Once you find the perfect container, you'll
need to fit styrofoam inside or find a sturdy cardboard to place on top. A clay pot
for flowers would make a pretty Springtime cakepop bouquet, and you may just
find craft styrofoam intended for floral arrangements to fit it precisely.
- Step two - arrange cake pops: Poke holes in styrofoam for a tidy arrangement,
insert the cake pops.
- Step three: hide the holes in the arrangement. Cover the stryrofoam or cardboard
stand with a layer of Jordan almonds, jelly beans, Sixlets chocolates, M&Ms,
gummies or other candy in your theme color. For a cake pop stand at a black and
white panda party try dry white rice to cover the styrofoam or a colorful mix of
candy. Left, the monster pops hide the cake pops in a bed of flowers.
