However, when it came to the smash cake, I just came up with my own plan.  Just a simple chocolate cake, two layers, made in 4-inch pans.  Then some chocolate frosting and chocolate sprinkles.  Sprinkles were just up the sides, not all the way to the top.  Then I sprinkled some on the top, but just around the edges.

The tree is just candy melts, that I melted in jars and then scooped into small zipper lock bags.  Cut a tiny corner off and “draw” the trees.  I put a piece of parchment paper on a pan and did the trees on that.  I was making these right before I wanted to use them, so I stuck the pan in the freezer so they would set up more quickly.
