The quickest and easiest way is to get one of the Wilton pans for the 3D tree...its so easy and fun to just take a large star tip and decorate it all over and then add candies and stuff....

Otherwise I guess I'd just bake rounds in graduating sizes (10/8/6/4 or even 10/9/8/7/6/5/ pans or cut from sheet cakes) and stack them up that way, then decorate.

I just posted a photo of one i did using a 2,3,4,5,6, & 7 inch cakes. It didn't require very much carving at all:

just an FYI... I wound up stacking several rounds and an upside down cupcake, then shaved off the edges to get the tree shape...the photo is in my gallery if you would like to take a look. <Ill try posting here but, have never had much luck of it working!>
