I'm making my 1st cookie/cake pop bouquet and want to have a few dozen treats in it. I'm planning on using floral foam but how does the whole thing not just topple over? Do you secure the foam to the basket and if so, how?

No I don't secure it. I just push the foam ($ store foam) down into my pot. Then i make a hole with my cake tester wherever I'm putting a stick. Then just insert the stick. I haven't had any issues ever with the pot toppling over.

If your container is lightweight you may have to weight it to keep it from tipping after you add the cookies. I use rocks that I buy in a big bag (cheap) from Home Depot and wash them. I add a layer tot he bottom and just sit the foam on top. Works like a charm. Heavy containers (like clay pots) don't need the extra weight and won't tip when adding cookies.

Good Luck!
