I'm planning to make a mountain bike groom's cake for my son next year and have been searching for ways to make trees. In my search I found this, using grape stems. Just genius.

I like the grape stem idea, but I don't like the fact that he used sculpey clay on his cake for the runner. My personal preference, but I wouldn't use it.

trees for the cake that would look pretty realistic but were also pretty edible (I do realize that grape stems are not technically edible but its better than wire)



I had to laugh at that. My daughters have done competitive gingerbread and we're well familiar with the must-be-edible-(but-who-the-heck-would-actually-eat-it?) approach to constructing things.

I was familiar with the cone trees, but love the grapevines and can't wait to give them a try.

So do you remove the floral wire after the trees are dry? They are so cute!
