Who doesn't love an edible centerpiece? It serves two purposes: to look beautiful and satisfy your taste buds. This mini cupcake tree from teaspoonsf is exactly that. Mini cupcakes are decorated with green buttercream frosting and are attached to a Styrofoam cone that mimics the shape of a Christmas tree. Red and gold wrapped Rolos resemble colorful ornaments on the tree. This is an easy holiday centerpiece that will impress anyone who lays eyes on it.
