this idea on cupcakes, and thought it was just awesome. So, I tried it.
Then, I had a blank cake... was hosting a holiday get together... so I thought I would try it on a cake.
A Double Batch of Decorator's Icing
-leave 3-4 cups white, color 2 cups green
Cupcake (removed from wrapper)
Mini Cupcake (removed from wrapper)
This idea could work on just about any size and any shape cake. Start by icing your cake with white icing, and make it smooth. (Click the link for my complete tutorial on how to ice a cake smooth.)
You may want to cut the top off of the cupcake if it is uneven or has a large dome on top. Your tree may lean a little (like mine does) if you don't.
Using your green icing and Wilton Tip 1M, swirl around the cupcakes, just like you would if you were swirling a cupcake.

For the stars on the top, I used Wilton Star Sprinkles.
