Here all you need to get started:
Sugar ice cream cones
Candy decorations (sprinkles, colored sugar, decorating colored gems, marzipan if you want to cut out a star for the tops) get creative!
green food coloring
Pastry bag either parchment paper or reusable bag
Make sure you add powdered sugar to the frosting until its very thick and not runny at all. Add a drop of green food coloring to the frosting.
Starting from the bottom of the cone pipe stars by pulling away (to make longer threads which are the branches) all along the bottom and work your way up until the entire cone is covered and no more cone is showing. Star tip the top. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, decorate with colored sprinkles or whatever you like. Dry for at least over night or 4 hours on wax paper. You can always fix them by keeping some spare frosting if you crush any of the branches. Don't worry it will still come out perfect!
Enjoy, create your own snow topped tree and Merry Christmas to you and your families!
