I had this idea for a dessert for Christmas. I had seen it in a magazine, although I don't remember which one. I planned on making a square cake, frost it white and then cross it with red "ribbons" making it look just like a present. In my mind, it was spectacular.

Then reality hit. After all the preparations, I was tired. Too tired to stand there and flatten several Twizzler into ribbon shapes. Suddenly, that great idea seemed like too much trouble. I still wanted to do more than a simple white frosting on the cake. I then got the idea to use the green tree-shaped cookies. I put them on the cake back-to-back. I rummaged through my baking supplies' drawer and found a package of snowman topped toothpicks which I then put on the cake. I finished with a tree shaped cookie on each side of the cake.

If I must say so myself, it turned out quite well and it was delicious too.

You're just having too much fun! It looks like a delicious match for Cromley's Keurig coffee maker!
What did Burnie and Crash do? Is that a paw or two that I see to the right of the snowmen?

Sometimes it just takes going through drawers to find stuff, or at least @ my house. Whenever I do it's like Christmas all over again.

Your cake made me remember that I have a bunch of stuff like that (leftover from when the kids were little) I need to either use or throw out. And your usage was perfect! I don't like a bare cake either but I'm not clever enough to come up with that on my own, lol! Great cake!
