Cupcake a Week: Christmas Tree

Merry Christmas Eve! By now I'm sure you all have your trees decked out with strands of sparking lights and colorful ornaments...and if you don't you better hurry before Santa comes tonight! I have really enjoyed sitting by our tree nightly this month and looking at its bright lights and unwinding from the day. I'm going to be sad to take it down and pack away all our beautiful ornaments next week.

The Christmas tree is one of my favorite holiday symbols so I thought it would be fun to create an edible one out of cupcakes.

Bake a batch of cupcakes. These happen to be red velvet. Arrange them in a tree shape.

Frost with green icing.

Add some rainbow nonpareils for the lights.

Then decorate with fondant ornaments!

You've got one beautifully delicious Christmas tree!

I hope Santa brings you lots of goodies tonight under your tree!

Merry Christmas!
