A Festive Edible Creation!



I made these Christmas edible trees to decorate tops of cakes during the Christmas holiday season


I use them for Christmas candy villages and gingerbread house decorations and they're just perfect to add to the center of a large cookie tray.


The best part was, they got to eat them on every Christmas eve with the candy house.


These Christmas trees can be used to decorate the top of sheet cakes to make a more festive look.


Making a village scene on a cake with the Christmas tree in the center was always my favorite cake to bring to a party, it also was admired every time I did bring one.

Tips



As I mentioned before, make sure you work on a flat surface like a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or wax paper.

Let them dry for around 4 hours so they are easier to remove without ruining the branches.

Use a spatula for lifting off the cookie sheet.

If you are in a hurry to use them, freeze them on the cookie sheet, remove them frozen and place on cakes.
