How to Make a Christmas Tree Cake
Full Recipe: https://preppykitchen.com/christmas-tree-cake/

If you saw my Christmas tree cupcakes you know where I got the inspiration for this cake! I cut up a few ice cream cones and used them as the base for various sized pine trees on the side and top of my cake. Little dollops of green buttercream and a dusting of powdered sugar complete the snowy winter scene.

I kept this recipe simple and just used a good vanilla but you could add ANYTHING! Bourbon, peppermint extract, mini chocolate chips, even toffee chips!

TIPS AND POINTERS:
*If you’re not using 6-inch pans, double the recipe for 8-inch pans or triple the recipe for 9-inch pans.
*If you see little clumps of butter after you mix the wet ingredients don’t panic, it all works out by the time you mix in the dry ingredients.
*You can substitute whole milk yogurt for the sour cream if desired, I do it all the time and can’t really tell the difference.
