Yes, I am very late with this post but I still wanted to share this very quick and very simple dress up of a cake I made for Christmas Eve using a boxed cake mix!
Here is what I started with. When I was making the Peanut Butter Balls I ended up with a little extra chocolate candy melts. It was already melted so I spooned it into a sandwich bag, cut a corner off and piped very simple Christmas trees onto parchment paper and let them set in the fridge.
All I had to do once the cake was baked and iced was to arrange the chocolate Christmas trees around the outside and then I plopped a gingerbread ornament on top.
I used the big candy ball sprinkles to make ornaments for the trees and a few on top for decorations and I had a cute little cake ready to take to my in-laws Christmas Eve!
