Sometimes you just might have on hand what you need to create something amazing! In this case, my dad had what I needed in his barn. I had my heart set on an eye catching cake pop stand that was a rainbow for the children's school program, and I needed styrofoam. If any of you have priced styrofoam at the craft stores, you know that it can be rather expensive, especially if you need a big piece or large quantity.
The first thing I started out with was some pink foam board that is used for insulating buildings. Not sure how much this stuff costs if you were to buy it brand new. My dad had some extra pieces laying around, so I used those to make my rainbow pieces.
I poked the holes in with a stick before I put the actual cake pops in place. I started in the center and then worked my way to the outside of each color. I believe this held about 45 cake pops. Here is the final project all set up at the party.
It turned out just how I had it pictured!
Think of the endless ideas you could do with this foam board. We would love to hear some ideas you might have of using this product to create an eye popping stand for your guests to enjoy plucking their cake pops from.
