  1. In order to decorate your trees, mix the shredded coconut with the green food colouring. You might have to add a little bit of water should they not mix well.
  2. Mix the powdered sugar with the lemon juice and a bit of water and add a few drops of green food colouring.
  3. Use a paint brush to apply the frosting and roll your trees in the shredded coconut.
  4. You can of course use different coloured frosting to decorate your trees. Enjoy and have a very Merry Christmas.

these look really cool, but is there a substitue for coconut for the leaves of the trees? neither my wife nor I care for coconut and I wanted to make this for her family holiday party.
Or maybe just green decorating sugar? Then they'd be all sparkly.

These look so fun and delicious!! I am going to try them for a party this weekend!
I am confused... You say, "use a paint brush to apply the frosting". What frosting? Am I missing something? I do not see any instructions about making frosting or see any frosting listed in the ingredients.
I was a little confused about that, too, but I think it's #9 in the directions above.
Oh, there you go... answered just below mine. :-p
Step 9 is the frosting.

Oops!,,, Now I see the frosting instructions - step 9 - thanks girlcousin for pointing it out! I need to slow down when I read. I was just so excited I went too fast! :)
I have my grandkids this weekend. Guess what we are doing!
Love this! I must try these!! Might even try it with cake batter poured into the parchment cones!
For the vanilla pod, did you scrape out the inside? Is that what "mark of a vanilla pod" means?
