Make it out of gumpaste! Not sure what size you are wanting,,but it's possible to handmold it. If big,,then make the trunk out of like 3, 4 or 6" cakes stacked, cover with fondant or frosting, then add the branches to stick into tree made out of modeling choc. or gumpaste. Do it when fondant(if using) is soft on cake.

I did mine out of modeling chocolate. It was very easy to work with and I loved the effect it gave. Look in my pics, it's the graveyard.
