Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very cute idea! Very cute idea! However not very easy to frost if you cut it first. Because I made the cake green I also tinted my frosting green. I suggest frosting the cake first before cutting and then freeze it, once froze cut into tree shapes. Much easier than trying to frost the trees individually. Also this way only the tops and the bottoms of the cakes will be frosted leaving the green cake on the outsides exposed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great tip: To make clean nearly invisible cuts instead of a knife, use dental floss. A great tip: To make clean nearly invisible cuts instead of a knife, use dental floss. Instead of lifting the floss up after slicing into the cake-without lifting the floss up just pull it out one of the sides. No mess. You can take a cake to a party that looks virtually uncut-ready to serve!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We made these for a Christmas Family party and it was a big hit! We made these for a Christmas Family party and it was a big hit! I died the cake mix green and the frosting green as well. The kids got to decorate the cake which made them so happy! ***I frosted the whole cake before I cut it into trees. This seemed to help the little kids a lot better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am making again for our Christmas dinner. I am making again for our Christmas dinner. Putting on individual plates and decorations in middle of table. Adults and kids are going to decorate their own. Lot's of people havn't decorated in years because kids are grown or whatever. I think it will be a fun for all..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So easy! So easy! So well-received! I made them all alike so there was no quibbling. I put each on a paper doily to make it easier to handle. And using food coloring in the batter itself means not icing a cut cake edge which can be difficult. Very clever!
