Visions of Sugar Plums

This year my Christmas tree is filled with all sorts of treats.  Lollipops, candies, chocolate covered strawberries, cupcakes, snowmen ice cream cones, gingerbread cookies... 
If you look carefully, amidst all the sweets are characters of the Nutcracker ballet tucked in. 

Even the Rat King himself is decked out in sugar sweet plums, pinks and golds.


Nearly every candy ornament has been frosted and sugared.  
Some of the snowflakes are pink with lots of sprinkles!


My gingerbread baker nutcracker has been working very closely with the Sugar Plum Fairy to create a delightful sweets and treats wonderland.  Gumdrops are scattered about as are sweet trees made of ice cream and gingerbread.


They must have had some help from the KitchenAid... (That's ok.  I need my KitchenAid too!)

At the bottom of the tree, large pink frosted cupcakes and a cotton candy tree sit among the presents.  (Soon I will be posting a tutorial on how to make the large cupcakes, ice cream and cotton candy trees).

  2. Thank you for featuring my Visions of Sugar Plums Kathryn!

  3. Can you purchase snowman ice cream cones, lollipops and large gingerbread man under the tree online ? This is fab!

  4. Hi Sarah... I don't believe Hobby Lobby sold the snowman ice cream cones, lollipops or gingerbread man online. It was only in-store. I wish they did though! I know there are several people who resell Hobby Lobby Christmas decor on Ebay. You might want to check there!
