Replace some of your traditional Christmas greenery with sugar-infused decor sure to treat your eyes and tempt your sweet tooth.
Whimsical and bright, striped topiary trees put a twist -- literally -- on ordinary holiday decor. Place them in white containers to make the vivid colors pop. For a splash of extra color, line the containers with gumdrops. Use a striped lollipop as the finishing touch on a package.
*Please note, that although fondant is edible, these projects are intended for decorating. The trees use glue and shouldn't be sampled. Because the lollipops have thicker rolls of fondant, which is traditionally rolled out into a very thin layer on cakes, they won't be very tasty. Offer other sweets so children won't be tempted by these decorative confections.
NOTE: One 24-ounce box of fondant will make one large topiary tree and one lollipop, or eight lollipops and no tree. Find fondant where cake-decorating supplies are sold.
