  1. Using scissors or a paring knife, cut a green leaf gum drop into halves or thirds.
  2. Using a Fondant Roller, roll out each of the cut pieces onto a surface sprinkled with granulated sugar to prevent sticking.
  3. Cut the rolled out pieces into triangles.
  4. Fill a disposable decorating bag with royal icing and cut about 1/4 in. (6.35 mm) off the end (a decorating tip is not needed). Use heavy pressure to pipe a line on the side of the house.
  5. Working from the bottom up, immediately position the gum drop pieces into the icing, applying more icing lines as needed until desired tree size is achieved.
