Baby Boy Shower

I was asked to make cupcakes and cake pops for a girl from church for her baby shower.

Here's how I set it up. I bought a Wilton 4-Tier Dessert Stand, and a package of two circles of flower foam. I cut a small circle out of the center of one of the pieces of foam the size of the "bump" in the center of the top tier. I placed that piece of foam on the top tier and placed four toothpicks into the foam

Then I just put the second circle on top.

I used my KraftEdgers Scissors and cut two 4" strips from a 12x12 piece of scrapbook paper.
I used sewing pins to hold the first piece of paper in place around the foam, then overlapped the edges with the second strip of paper and used glue to adhere the top paper to the bottom.

Then I randomly placed my cake pops into the foam.

I also made cupcakes, they were just classic yellow cupcakes, and I used tip 1M to pipe extra large stars into the center of the cupcake, after this picture was taken I also cut out very small stars from white fondant and placed the on the top of the icing.

Here's how it all turned out:
