Christmas Tree Tutorial #4

Wednesday, December 15, 2010

Today's tree tutorial is very similar to #3. This tree is also pretty simple, but it has a much different look. I think it's a little more realistic.

I just want to start singing Jingle Bells....

You'll need some green fondant shaped into a cone, a small diamond cutter, a rolling pin, and a shell tool (or a toothpick will also work).

Roll the fondant and cut out diamond shapes.

Take one fondant piece and the shell tool.

Turn the shell tool over and gently roll it from one side to the other.

Carefully rolling it will leave an impression on your fondant. If you don't have a shell tool, you can use a toothpick to get the same effect.

Brush a little water on the top edge of each diamond then start attaching the bottom row. 

Continue adding the leaves. Make sure you stagger them as you work your way up.

Join the top edges together when you reach the top.
