Instead of making a Christmas tree cake in a tree-shaped pan, just create Christmas trees from individual cake wedges. Go beyond cake and make a whole christmas tree with marshmallows and cornflakes that will be the perfect ending to your holiday feast.

Arrange wedges on their sides on a sheet pan; freeze 1 hour.

  • Spread icing over all sides of each cake wedge. Decorate with licorice candy to form garlands and Skittles for ornaments.

Secure stars to top of each cake wedge with a toothpick.
