I made these guys for Mother's Day. I baked round cookies on lollipop sticks, decorated them with royal icing. I think next time I will use butter cream. The royal icing dried to hard. It makes for good decorating, just not to nice to eat in my opinion. Once the icing was dry I placed them in a flower pot. Inside the flower pot was a piece of floral styrofoam, I just stuck the stick directly into the foam. I put some beans in the pot to give it weight so they wouldn't tip over. To finish it off I put the green crumpled paper on top.
