HOW TO MAKE ICE CREAM CONE CHRISTMAS TREES

Ice Cream Cone Christmas Trees are made by piping green frosting onto inverted sugar cones. The frosted cones are then decorated with various candies and sprinkles of your choice.

WHAT IF I DON'T HAVE PIPING TIPS FOR THE FROSTING?

If you don't have a piping bag or piping tips, that's okay! If you have a tip, but no bag, you can snip the end off of a plastic baggie and insert the tip into the cut end. If you don't have any piping tips, you can simply use a knife to spread the frosting evenly all over the outside of the cone.

WHAT PIPING TIP SHOULD I USE?

There is no specific tip that is required for this project. Each tip will create a different look for your tree, so get creative a test a few out to see what you like best!

AM I SUPPOSED TO EAT ICE CREAM CONE CHRISTMAS TREES?

Once you are done decorating your "tree," you can either not eat them and leave them on a platter for a fun Christmas decoration or you can eat them if you want to! It's totally up to you. If you do decide to eat them, try placing one atop a bowl of ice cream for a fun Christmas dessert!
