I brushed a little extra chocolate on the back of the cake ball and then put it on a toothpick on the styrofoam cone.
I'm gonna try to save it for family christmases, but it won't fit in my fridge and my 3 year old will probably dismantle it first thing in the morning if he can reach it.

I was wondering if it is possible to use peanut butter balls and achieve the same outcome as this? My daughter does not want cake for her birthday, she wants peanut butter balls, and that being the case, what would you recommend ? Thanks for the help.

That's really pretty!  I think I would cover the styrofoam in fondant though, for those little areas where you can see it.

Love it! Roughly how many cake balls did you use? Also, how did you weigh it down to stable it?

Love this!! I tried it but could not get it to work. Cake balls would not stick with chocolate or toothpick. Any advice would be appreciated.
