To create a variety of curved shapes, use both sides of Flower Formers to dry leaves. You can also add a colorful flair to leaves by brushing them with a mix of clear vanilla and icing color or use pearl dust and brush color onto leaves.

Yule Just Love This Tree! Cupcakes is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from This cupcake tree was easy, but time consuming. You do really need to cut out the 200+ leaves to make it look right, you can't skimp on the leaves. When letting the leaves firm I used a clean empty egg carton since there were so many and I only have 6 flower formers. You do really need to form them so they look right. Unlike the instructions, I did not let them dry completly before applying them, they would be too brittle otherwise and I like a little wiggle room for adjusting them. I added a half of a marshmallow with buttercream to the top of the ornaments.
