Holiday Holly Tree Cupcakes is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I loved the leaves on these cupcakes. They are so easy and everyone thinks they look so cool. I have done several different cupcake trees and everyone always goes on and on about the leaves. The kids love to eat them. Using the flower formers really makes them look three dimeninsal. I also marble the fondant to make them look even more life like.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this idea. With cupcakes being so popular this year this offers a great option for the look of a cake but the ease of cupcakes. Great for a kids party or even for the office.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This was fun to make with the kids. We used licorice strings and made lights out of M&M's to decorate it up a little more. Their classes loved them!
