My mom made these for my daughter's baby shower. They turned out adorable. The dum dum idea would have been better than the gum drops. Every one of the gum drops totally split up after a couple hours. Didn't look pretty! And the lollipop stick would have been better if a popsicle stick was used. You can get colored popsicle sticks at the craft supply store. We used the round lollipop stick and when someone picked up the stick with the cupcake on it, the cupcake twirled around to face the bottom of the plate. Although adorable, they were a disappointment. My mom is a professional cake decorator, so this was not a pleasant experience for her.
