If you’re anything like me, you were so excited to make some trees out of cake that you convinced yourself to order a pack of 200+ paper cups. Now, I can only guess at this one here, but I would assume that you too made a cute, edible forest, and are still left wondering what to do with the remaining 175 or so cups that are leftover. Never fear, I have a chilly solution that will please taste buds and tummys alike.
That’s right, more trees! But this time, my evergreens are frozen; green tea freezer pops from My Sweet Vegan, to be exact. They come together in an instant, so they can easily satisfy a sweet craving, and they just happen to be the perfect color without any additional dyes required. Any other sort of popsicle recipe will also work though: Just set the cups in a bunch of mugs like you did for the cake trees and pour the mixture in about 3/4 of the way to the top. Place all the mugs on a tray, and set the tray on a level shelf in your freezer. Let them sit for about an hour or so, until they begin to firm up a bit, and insert the stick into the center so that it stands up straight. Allow at least 4 hours for the pops to completely freeze.
And if you’re still as crazy as me, you’ll think that it’s a pretty cool idea to take the popsicles outside and photograph them in the freshly fallen snow. Okay, so I’m guessing I’m alone on this one, but I just couldn’t resist!
