Every year my kids and I like to create a Holiday food craft, and this year we made a Cookie Christmas tree and decorated it with candy.
The tree is made out of nested star cookies in graduated sizes which are then stacked up to make a tree shape. I frosted the cookies with white icing to give them a snow covered look, and then used royal icing to secure the Sixlets and Shimmer Stars to the tree.
Decorating the tree was a little frustrating, because the candy was so small. We worked from the bottom up, and it was easy for us to knock a lower row off as we added the candy. But we persevered, and the final result was worth the effort! I love the clean look of the blue, white and silver candy, and this makes a great centerpiece for our dining room table.
