Starting with the biggest Star Biscuit, sandwich each size on top of each using a small amount of icing. Remember to offset each star shape to give a Christmas tree effect.

Colour the remaining icing with a little green food colouring and pipe around the edges of the Biscuit tree (see photo) and decorate with lollies and even tiny cupcakes.

TIP…pipe on your icing using a round nozzle point. To make your own piping bags use a ziplock bag and cut the end off
