A multi-layer fondant cake that wows has it’s place on dessert tables, but other times, you want quick, easy and inexpensive. But of course, you also want cute. These 3-D Christmas tree cake toppers provide the wow — quickly, easily and cheaply. Here’s how to make them.

- Scrapbooking paper (two-sided if you can find it)
- Silhouette Cameo or scissors
- Glue (I like Aleene’s Thick Tacky Glue — note: this is an Amazon affiliate link)

1 – Cut out Christmas trees in three different sizes. Mine were roughly 5 inches tall, 4 inches, and 3 inches. I used design #22548 from the Silhouette Store, but you could easily cut these by hand.
You’ll need four trees of each height, so four 5-inch trees, four 4-inch trees and four 3-inch trees. If your paper is double-sided, you only need two trees of each height.
If you cut your trees by hand, you’ll need to add a slit to the top of two trees and the bottom of two trees.
2 – Take the two bottom-slit trees and glue them back to back. Take the two top-slit trees and glue them back to back. If your paper is double-sided, you can skip this step.
3 – Slide the bottom-slit trees into the top-slit trees.
4 – Glue your lollipop stick to one corner of the 3-D tree.
Here’s your finished cake toppers. Because sometimes, more is just more and all you need is just right.
