Happy Holidays Xmas Tree Cake

My son and I made a Christmas Cake to take to a friend's house tomorrow. It is glaringly obvious that I am a poor cake icer but it was fun and it tastes good. I used a vanilla cake recipe that I found here. One and a half times this recipe was the perfect amount to fill a half sheet pan. I cut the cake in half to make two layers and then cut it in the shape of the tree. We made a simple buttercream frosting (#4 on this list of frostings) and it turned out great. The cake was moist and tasty and the frosting whipped up nicely.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Holiday Season.
