How to Make a Cupcake Christmas Tree

1. With a large round tip, pipe the bottom base of the frosting. Start with a little blob in the center, then a smooth ring around it.

2. Dip the first layer into Christmas sprinkles. Chill in the fridge for 5 minutes.

3. With a large open star tip, pipe a nice tall swirl on top of the first layer. Add a few sprinkles and a sugar pearl on the very top
