Use cookie cutters to cut four 1-inch stars and two 1 1/2-inch stars from tortilla. Carefully thread stars onto 2 skewers, leaving about 1 inch at the top. In a small bowl, combine sugar and 2 teaspoons cinnamon. Set skewers and sugar mixture aside.

In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add tortilla stars (skewers and all) and cook, in batches if necessary, until golden brown, 30 to 60 seconds per side. Transfer to a plate and sprinkle both sides of stars with cinnamon sugar mixture. Add blueberries to the skewers and set aside.

Dice enough cake or cupcake to yield 1 cup. Arrange diced cake in serving glasses or jars and top with strawberries. Cut remaining cake or cupcake into 2 small wedges. Set serving glasses and cake wedges aside.

In the jar of a blender, combine ice cream, milk, condensed milk, almond extract (to taste), and remaining 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon.

Add milkshake mixture to prepared glasses. Top with whipped cream, cake wedges, cookies, candies, sprinkles, sparkling sugar, and maraschino cherries. Add skewers with tortilla stars and serve.
