Frosting for Christmas Tree Cupcakes

Recipe photo courtesy of Lucas Allen

Serve this showy dessert this holiday season. Christmas Tree Cakes are laden with snowy frosting and sprinkled with sanding sugar. If you like, you can tint the buttercream pale green with gel paste food coloring. Save some sugar to create beds of "snow" for serving.

    I'm sure they will be sweeet enough after being sprinkled with the sanding sugar.

    Surely this is supposed to be CUPS of icing sugar, not TABLESPOONS? Otherwise the frosting would be too soft and definitely not sweet enough!
