So now I'm going to show you how to make a Christmas tree. I'm going to take some green fondant, premade. I'm just going to roll it into a ball, and then I'm going to roll it into a cone shape. Just pinch it up. And then I'm just going to flatten the bottom a little bit with my fingers, so it can stand up straight. And then with a small pair of scissors, you're going to pick up your Christmas tree, and then you're just going to start snipping at it. So just snip. And then you can dip your scissors into some cornstarch, because it might stick as you cut into the Christmas tree. So just make nice little snips all around. And you can add some Christmas balls if you like or some powdered sugar so maybe it looks like it just snowed. And then after you're done snipping, you're just going to let it dry. And then it's going to be ready for your Christmas cake.
