You Will Need Craft Essentials How to Make


  1. To make the Christmas trees roll out your icing on a clean, dry work surface dusted with a little icing sugar, to approx 4 mm thickness. Cut out the trees with the large and medium sized cutters; you will need four of each. To decorate the trees, press the silver sugar balls into the icing.
  2. Using the craft punch, cut out twelve paper circles and attach to the centre of each rectangular piece of paper.
  3. Skewer each tree base in the middle with a cocktail stick, so that half of the stick is showing. Break cocktail sticks in half for the smaller trees, following the same method. Put the trees/sticks to one side and leave overnight, to allow the icing to harden.
  4. Roll the remaining icing to approx 2 mm thickness and using the small snowflake plunger cutter, make ten shapes. Paint the back of each snowflake with egg white then add directly onto the cake.
  5. Arrange your trees on the cake, using the cocktail sticks to secure them.
  6. To finish, you can add a Christmas sparkle effect by spraying a little pearl lustre then tie a ribbon around the cake and attach neatly at back using a small piece of double sided tape.
