Does anyone have a suggestion on what I can use to make "leaf" trees? I don't know how to do fondant and I don't want the ice cream cone/frosting pine trees.
Thank you!

Wellll you odn't leave many options icon_smile.gif

Choco transfers
Color Flow
Royal Icing

Fondant is not hard to work with. It's just like play dough OR pie dough icon_smile.gif Just roll a marble size ball into a snake and shape it. Add additional pieces for more branches (roll thinner for smaller ones) and attach them w/a bit of liquid (any be anything). Allow to dry overnight.

Leaf trees??? icon_smile.gif

You can make a palm tree of sorts using pretzel rods for the stem of the tree. Then with stiff green royal icing and a leaf tip, pipe the top of the tree. Does that help you any? Not sure what you mean about leaf trees.
