Pinterest Project #115 Ice Cream Cone Christmas Trees and Olaf!

This project was so much fun.
I saw this on pinterest and normally you would make the ice cream cone trees with green icing...but we are on a Frozen Frenzy in this house so we decided to make them...well frozen!
Olaf even made an appearance. I made him out of styrofoam balls attached with wire so his head even moves from side to side.
Placed all the trees in a painted shoe box with the castle behind that I painted and glued mirrors to for a more glittery effect.

The trees were decorated with sour patch candies that actually look like gumdrops so it worked out perfectly. Pixie sticks of blue were used for the snow on the trees and cotton balls on the base for snow sprinkled with blue pixie sugar as well.

These are fabulous. Chewy dough made with olive oil, butter and garlic powder wrapped around mozzarella cheese and baked to perfection.
Oh they were divine..simply divine. Serve with some marinara sauce on the side...a meal in itself.
