Additional Information

Step 1

At least 1 to 2 days in advance: Make fondant trees and star, using 24 oz. of white fondant. Roll fondant 1/8 in. thick. Using copper tree cutter, cut 3 trees for 6 in. cake top; with knife, cut 2 trees vertically in half. Using two smallest metal tree cutters, cut 12 of each size tree (24 total); cut trees vertically in half. Cut 1 star with smallest cutter from set. Position all pieces on cornstarch-dusted surface to dry. When dry, using royal icing, pipe tip 1 outline branches on trees and rays on star.

Step 2

Roll 24 oz. of white fondant into a 14 in. circle. Using craft knife, cut wavy design around edge and position on cake base.

Step 3

Tint 36 oz. fondant blue, 24 oz. green, 12 oz. violet; reserve remaining white fondant for additional trees. Prepare 2-layer cakes for stacked construction. Prepare and cover cakes with fondant; smooth. Position cakes on base. Divide 6 in. cake into 6ths, 8 in. cake into 8ths and 10 in. cake into 10ths. Roll white fondant 1/8 in. thick and use two smallest metal tree cutters to cut another set of 12 of each size tree (24 total), one at a time. Use Piping Gel to alternately attach larger and smaller trees to cake sides at division points. Pipe tip 1 branches with royal icing. (Note: There will be a space between trees where balls will be piped.) With tip 1 and royal icing, attach dried fondant tree halves to corresponding-size trees on cake sides, positioning in a "wing" fashion. Repeat process to attach tree halves for 6 in. cake top to whole cake top tree. Attach tree and star with royal icing. Pipe tip 1 snowflakes and dots on cake sides and tip 5 balls between trees with royal icing.

The ball shape makes bold borders and is the first step to learn for figure piping. Vary the basic look by adding stars, dots or spirals on the ball shapes.
