These are all separate pieces. You can make only one type or combine them on a cake, rice krispy treat or use them as a centerpiece.
Large Christmas Trees, Supplies needed:

  2. Make royal icing mix and color most of it green. Leave a little white for snow.
  3. Fill sugar cone with icing. Insert 8" stick. (This is what you are going to hold on to while piping the rest.)
  4. Attach # 18 tip to bag and fill with green icing.
  5. Hold onto stick and start at the bottom of ice cream cone, approx 1/2" from bottom and squeeze and pull down and away to form branch.
  6. Continue same motion working around and up on the cone. Leave a small amount of cone on top uncovered.
  7. Hold cone where it is not covered and remove it from the stick. place on parchment paper.
  8. Finish the top of tree.
  9. While icing is still wet, attach yellow star and sprinkle with jumbo nonpareils.
