I made this for my daughter's high school graduation party and it was a huge hit. Everyone loved it. I used pepperoni sticks (the skinny ones) instead of ham, though.
It was not only delicious but was the prettiest center piece. Stood them up in clear vase and then layed the rest down on rectangle white plate.
