I don't think you have to worry about the toothpicks. The balls are soft, the cone is solid(er). The toothpicks will stay in the cone. One really have to pull hard in order to remove them.
I once made an appetizer ball with chocolate dipped fruit pieces in a similar fashion. I wanted
my guests to be able to pull out the pieces with
the toothpick, so they had something to hold on to. It didn't work that way. I ended up with a prickly ball. LOL
Please make sure you take a picture of your art piece, so we can see, how it worked for you. I think it is a grand idea. Send it to Martha Stewart.
Also, maybe you can sift a bit of powdered sugar over them, just to make an illusion of snow. Don't overdo it though, just a bit on the top of each piece,like falling snow. If you can find a tiny star somewhere, or maybe just make one out of stickers or cut one out of some gold paper, it would be a very impressive centerpiece.
Hope you don't mind if I steal your idea at some point- Pingo

[QUOTE]Yes, Pingo, a styro-cone should work. I had considered holding them together with toothpicks, but was afraid the little ones wouldn't realize to take them out and would bite into them. But with the cone, they could just pull them off.
