The Partiologist: Rice Krispie Christmas Tree!

Rice Krispie Christmas Tree!

Curtain Call...the party's not over yet!

Once in a while something doesn't go as planned (okay, it happens more than once in a while). This was one of those times and I just had to make the best of it.  I wanted a beautiful tiered Christmas Tree Cake.  I'll admit that once I finished, I really liked how it turned out, however, it couldn't have been further from what I had drawn.

The Merry Krispmas Christmas Tree!

 
I formed all the layers in 4", 6", 8" and 10" cake pans. 



I used a cone shaped paper cup for the top.
 
After pressing in the round cake pan, I removed the Krispies and molded them into a point and then pressed the point flat and stacked them all on top of each other.

 
 
So far, so good I thought until I got out the fondant.  Umm, that didn't work, so I made fondant holly leaves by pressing a vein design into the fondant and then using a teardrop cookie cutter to cut out each leaf.  Different sizes for each layer. 



I'm pretty sure I made at least five gazillion leaves.



Ready to shine...it's party time!

 
 
 
Almost forgot another little corner...
 
 
 
This was the spot for sleigh ride snacks...
 
 
The push pops were filled with frozen chocolate chip cookie dough balls.

I hope you were inspired and even found a few ideas to use for ANY party!

My golden themed Christmas party has now come to an end.

Joy to the World!

  2. Your tree looks beautiful. Sometimes great things come when we hit roadblocks in our designs. The push up pops with cookie dough, is genius.
