Many wild hairs later, I iced the "cake" and adorned it with the cherries, white mums, candles, and greenery.
I guess we all need to play, right?
For a small gathering, this would work because you could warn people to stick to the cherries. At a large gathering, you'd have to do a Paul Revere.
Lots of possibilities here for other holidays and tablescapes! :-)
(There! I hope I made you laugh, or at least smile. Because even though this started out to be a serious fake centerpiece, it turned into a laughfest for Bandwith and Dr. Gollum, with me out laughing them both. A good time was had by All. Totally.)
I'm joining Susan at http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/ for Tablescape Thursday this eve of Christmas Eve. See y'all there.
P.S. Foodie Friday will be up tomorrow at 8 pm central.
