DIY Edible Palm Trees- Paint the Gown Red

Nearly a year ago, Nick and hopped on a plane to Jamaica. It was the most incredible, relaxing and romantic trip of my life, and I’ve been dreaming about it ever since. I want to go back and lie in hammocks shaded by banana leaves, drink tropical cocktails and listen to Bob Marley on repeat. But there are only so many spontaneous adventures one can afford in life. So because I can’t go there, I decided to bring Jamaica here. Introducing edible palm tree cupcake toppers! Because if you can’t have a vacation, you need a vacupcake.

DIY Edible Palm Trees- Paint the Gown Red


  • Green Chewy Candy (Airhead)
  • Pirouline Cookies
  • Brown M&Ms
  • Chocolate Frosting
  • Kitchen Scissors
  • Rolling Pin
  • Parchment Paper


Gather materials. Unwrap candy and place on a parchment-lined plate. Microwave for 5 seconds. Using a rolling pin, roll out candy. Cut into two leaves. Repeat with remaining candy. For each tree, overlap four leaves and roll together. Place a dollop of frosting in the center of leaves. Place pirouline cookie in the center and four brown M&Ms around it. Repeat with remaining leaves. Refrigerate to harden. Top a cupcake. Serve and enjoy!
