We have a family tradition at Orangehouse. I make the cakes in whatever shape the boys request. When I asked Jono what type of cake he wanted, he said "uh... I dunno..." and then looking around the room for ideas, suddenly replied "a Christmas tree!" so that's what I made. I used strawberry cake mix, lemon icing dyed green, and red M&M's as decorations. Then I used some real tree bark stripped from our firewood to decorate the trunk. We won't eat that.
