Grinch Christmas Tree Cake
Ingredients and Materials:
• 4 x 6″ round vanilla cakes colored lime green
• Green buttercream (20 drops green, 5 yellow, 5 brown)
• Styrofoam cones
• Green, red, white, silver round candies

1. Attach one 6″ round cake to cake board with a dab of buttercream. Cut the second cake using a 5.25″ cutter, the third with a 4.5″ cutter, and the forth with a 3.75″ cutter. Stack cakes and layer with buttercream.
2. Trim a small amount off of the top edge of each layer so that the cake layers slope gradually to the top. Place stacked cake in the freezer.
3. Cut the Styrofoam cone into 3 pieces. Trim off a section of each bottom and angle them to droop. Secure with toothpicks or crazy glue. Wrap cone in plastic wrap.
4. Remove cake from the freezer and place the drooping cone on top of the cake. Secure cone to the cake with a large skewer, pressing it all the way down into the cake board below.
5. Cover the cake entirely in a thin layer of green buttercream.
6. Place remaining buttercream into a piping bag fitted with a leaf tip (#366) and cover the entire cake in leaves.
7. Place candies on the cake where desired.
8. To add elements to the cake board, add present chocolates and a “Whoville” sign made from gum paste. Attach the sign to a peppermint stick. Use a ball of fondant to attach the sign to the cake board.
9. Slice and serve cake when desired. Cake should be kept in a sealed container in the fridge and consumed within 2-3 days.
