Cupcake Christmas Tree
Total TimePrep: 45 min. Bake: 20 min. + cooling
Quick and easy and the grandchildren loved decorating it.
I made the tree with large cupcake liners, like muffins,and put fruitcocktail cake in them then iced with white icing and dip in green sugar, used 10 for the tree & 2 for the trunk (brown) I only needed 12. It was for Christmas Bunco and was tooo cute and easy.
I made this yesterday for the church potluck, everyone loved them kids and adults. Especially some of the younger kids who were there watching me icing it in the church basement, imagine their eyes when it was all put together and decorated. I iced the cupcakes and then took just a little icing so they were joined together so it looked like a cake, but with no mess but the muffin wrappers!!! I used mini m+m's for the decorations and also sprinkled some green sprinkles so it was sparkly! Intsead of the chocolate mint muffin thing i just used vanilla and also for the icing, i didn't bother making my own, just one can of vanilla Betty crocker stuff with green food colouring for the tree and chocolate for the bottom. I still have green food colouring on my fingers, i guess i touched the side of the bowl!oopsI wish I had taken a picture!so easy to make and adorable looking, even for the little presents on the bottom, so easy!I give it 10/ 10 !
