This recipe sounded like a cute idea, so I thought I'd share it with you. I found this recipe in the Tightwad Gazette. It was submitted by Catherine Chavis. Prepration time is estimated.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 6 small pointed sugar ice cream cones (not waffle cones)
  • 1 small decorative candies, for tree decorations
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 3 tablespoons margarine
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • green food coloring
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. To create frosting, combine all ingredients except for sugar cones and candy decorations.
  2. Modify the shade of green to your taste.
  3. Place cones top side down (standing up) on a plate or other flat surface.
  4. Cover cones with frosting.
  5. Use a spatula, butter knife or maybe a decorator tip on a piping bag.
  6. Decorate trees with candies before frosting dries.
