STEP 1) MAKE CAKE POPS
Make the cake pops according to the recipe on THE RECIPE page, using the white candy coating to cover and adding a sprinkling of red non-pareils to each one before they dry.
STEP 2) TIE RIBBON BOWS AND ADD RIBBON TO STAND
Tie the red ribbon to each cake pop and attach one strip of ribbon to the bottom of the stand using a piece of scotch tape to adhere to the back.
STEP 3) CREATE BANNER
Snap off the pointed end of each bamboo stick. Tie the twine to the top of each stick, leaving enough twine in between to stretch across the cake pop stand and with excess at either end. Wrap excess twine around each bamboo stick, trim and place in the stand. Wedge a toothpick into the same hole that is holding the bamboo stick in order to steady both ends of the banner. Add stickers to the twine to create message.
