How to Decorate a Holiday Cake

When I was a kid, I always wanted to cut down my own Christmas Tree. There was just something so cool about going to the forest and finding the perfect tree to bring home and decorate. Unfortunately, I'm Jewish - and Jews don't cut down trees for the holidays. They light candles.

So it is something that is still on my life "to do" list. One of these years I will get out there and cut down my own tree. But in the mean time, I made a cake - a cake dedicated to all the trees I have not cut down over the years.

This is a great winter themed cake you can make at home. It is a simple Vanilla Vanilla Cake covered in white fondant and decorated with lavender leaf (fresh rosemary should work as well) "tree stamps".

I might be the only person in the history of the world that has ever been grounded from baking. That's right. When I was a teen, it wasn't the computer, or the phone or the tv that got taken away. For me, it was the unsalted butter.

I think the lavender leaves left a more "piney-looking" print than the real pine needles may have looked! This is gorgeous. Great job. You always inspire me, Lindsay. (Although given your last post on flying cross-country for a disappointing donut run, I've decided NOT to begin my own donut tour! Ha, ha!)

Thanks Lee Ann! I hope you are having a good holiday season!
