These Christmas tree treats in girly colors with sparkle were made for my book, Decorate Cakes, Cupcakes, and Cookies with Kids. Cayman, a great friend of my daughter and my sister-in-law, Kelly, decorated these treats. This was one of the two projects that got cut from the book. Buttercream is used to pipe leaves on the tree cookies (tip #352)and the tree cake (tip #366). The trees on the cupcakes are made using the tree cutter from the Winter Cutie Cupcake Set. Disco dust is used to provide the most vibrant sparkle. Disco dust isn’t food approved, so technically, the ornaments and star on the tree and the trees on cupcakes should be removed before consuming.
This collection of treats is from my book “Complete Photo Guide to Cake Decorating”. I am so excited! I just heard that I may be receiving a copy any day! It is officially out February 1. (Preorder on Amazon.com or Country Kitchen SweetArt) This cake is covered with chocolate panels using light blue chocolate and snowflake chocolate transfer sheets. The decorations are created with gum paste and PME’s gum paste Santa cutter. The snowflake cookies were made with my snowflake cookie cutter texture set using light blue fondant and piped royal icing designs. The Oreo cookies were dipped in light blue chocolate and decorated with piped run sugar accents.
