Ohh Lil Christmas Tree have yourself an early merry lil christmas!!


I know it's early to talk about Christmas trees but I just got back from my Last Cake Decorating Class & Christmas Trees was the last lesson. I think they are just so cute!! It's amazing what you can do with a cupcake, some food coloring, & a lil bit of icing. Those lil trees up there are ALL icing & ALL cupcake. I'll explain.

Basically what you need is 1 large cupcake, 1 mini cupcake, some green icing & some red icing. Of course you will need your metal styling tips & a pastry bag too. Oh don't forget your imagination.

You put icing on the top of the cupcake to make the tree skirt. I tried making red icing but for some odd reason it stayed pink. Oh well. You place the mini cupcake on top of the bigger iced cupcake. 

Using a Metal Styling tip you start making the lil stars for the branches of the tree over the top Mini Cupcake.

Then you fill in the whole mini cupcake to create the Tree. I added some pink dots so it looked like ornaments & a yellow star for the top.


Me Placing Ornaments on the Tree =)
I can't believe this was my last class of cake decorating. I've learned so much I can't begin to describe. My mom assures me that there will be another session in the Spring. I can't wait. We also learned how to make a Tootsie Roll Rose.

That rose is completely made out of Tootsie Rolls. We softened up 3 tootsie rolls so we could combine them & roll it out. Using cutters we shaped out the rose. It's amazing what someone can create with just a lil sugar & some imagination.

I can't wait to use all that I've learned here in class. Soon enough I will. =)
