Materials

Look around your house, or walk into a craft store and you will find a myriad of containers to display your cake pops ideally. For this particular stand, we’re going to use:

A container: As you search for a container keep in mind the number of cake pops you want to display, as well as how many of those cake pops will fit in one container. Sometimes rather than one large container, it is fun to split them into two containers or more!

Styrofoam: You can use old cake dummies that you don’t need, or Styrofoam comes in many shapes and sizes at most local craft stores. You can also order Styrofoam cake dummies at Dallasfoam.com or many other stores online. If you can’t find the shape or size you need, just cut your Styrofoam using a knife or blade. (This will get messy, with white “snow” going everywhere; so be careful where you cut and don’t cut it close to your cake pops.)

Glass beads: These beauties can be found in craft stores or online. They come in an array of colors and are typically used for decorative purposes in fish bowls or vases. So be sure to wash them well.

Step 1: Place the Styrofaom into your decorative container. Your Styrofaom should be slightly shorter than the container, so you can fill the container with the beads to hide the Styrofaom.

Step 2: Fill the container with the glass beads. I would recommend getting more glass beads than you think you will need, because some may fall down the sides. It always takes more beads than I expect.

Step 3: Simply fill your cake pop stand with your delicious and beautifully decorated cake pops.
