For the structure of the trees I used some heavy duty wire.  With plyers I twisted several wires together at the bottom for the trunk and covered them in tape.  For the trunk and branches I made modeling chocolate and covered the wires .  The leaves are corn flakes covered in melted marshmallows dyed green.  After completely cooled off I glued them on to the wires with gum paste glue. That was my fear that the trees might topple over...I made a dense 3D cake and inserted...
I am very pleased with how my trees turned out.
Does anyone have any experience sculpting realistic looking trees? My idea is to use wire covered in modeling chocolate for the trunk and branches and somehow attach green chocolate covered corn flake clumps to the branches.  Just wondering if anyone has other ideas???
