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.
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.

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