Christmas Cupcake Tutorial

Christmas is just around the corner. I put together a simple and easy tutorial for Christmas tree cupcake toppers.
What you need:  A small rolling pin, green and yellow fondant, star cutter, painbrush and small pair of nail cutting scissors.  The nail scissor can be found at any of those dollar stores and very useful for your cake tool box.
Step 1:  Roll the green fondant into a pointy shape.  If your fondant is very soft, mix with gumpaste or add some tylose to it to stiffin it up.
Step 2: With the curve of the scissors pointing upward, start making little cuts into the fondant.  Match the start and finish of the cuts and just move around the shape.
Step 3: When you've reached how tall you want the tree, then make the final cuts very deep.  Then you can just easily twist off your tree.
Step 4: Roll out the yellow fondant and cutout your star.  Dab a little water on top of the tree and place it on.  And there you have a simple Christmas tree - feel free to add additional decorations too!
I liked my trees plain as I did made a little reindeer to match my daughter's onesie that says "My First Christmas".  Hope you enjoyed the tutorial and have a great week!
