Festive Fruit Trees

2 Dec

We made these awesome festive fruit trees today.

To make the base, we took and apple and flattened off the base. We cut a hole in the top and inserted a smallish carrot using cocktail sticks to stick them together, like so:

We then stuck in cocktail sticks around the apple and carrot. Geeks would do this in the Fibonacci Sequence, as plants seem to work that way.

We then added fruit to the sticks, taking care to cover the carrot:

Then carried on, for quite a while and dusted with icing sugar:
