They are also available online at places like Kitchen Warehouse, eBay, Target… & more (Our example below is from www.cookiecuttershop.com.au but you can also get cheaper plastic ones from other stores)

Starting with the biggest Star Biscuit, sandwich each size on top of each using a small amount of icing. Remember to offset each star shape to give a Christmas tree effect.

Colour the remaining icing with a little green food colouring and pipe around the edges of the Biscuit tree (see photo) and decorate with lollies and even tiny cupcakes.

TIP…pipe on your icing using a round nozzle point. To make your own piping bags use a ziplock bag and cut the end off

Big thank you for our friends at Whoot for their creative idea and beautiful photos
