Unwrap pre-packaged pies. Insert lollipop stick (from Michael's) into bottom of pie. Ice names and baseball seams onto pies. I used ready made Wilton brand cookie icing (it is stackable when dry) squeezed into my own pastry bags fitted with a #3 tip. When fully dry, cover with cello bags and tie with coordinating ribbon.

I created striped and dotted patterned paper on my computer and printed it out. I then experimented with a piece of paper to come up with a template that would roll into a cone. Using the template, I cut out my papers, rolled into cones and secured with a piece of tape. I inserted short wooden skewers into my display box, slid the cone over the skewer, held upright and then poured in popcorn to make them stand up straight.
I started with a six pack of florist foam from Michael's. I used this because it was four dollars, compared to a price tag of twenty for a solid block of the foam. I left the clear wrapper that came on the six blocks, wrapped the entire thing in wrapping paper and embellished with a ribbon.
here for the how-to on that.
We rounded out the season last night with a picnic pool party, resplendent with loads of daddy-son fun, trophies and sweet coach's gifts that fun friend M and I threw together yesterday.
