Candy Holiday Trees for Gingerbread Houses are a great addition to the landscaping! Made with a few ingredients, they are worth a little bit of time spent spent making them because they add so much to the gingerbread houses.
*Make them ahead because the royal icing needs to dry overnight! They can even be made a couple of weeks ahead of time.
My favorite sugar cones for the holiday trees!
- Joy® sugar cones
