This beautiful appetizer was a beautiful hit during 
the holidays last year!

I made it for Christmas Eve but first I had to build a frame.

Homeroad is definitely not a food blog but when I saw appetizer trees like this on Pinterest I knew it was something I needed to make.

My problem was how do I transport this beautiful creation without having it spill out all over?

I am a crafter,not a cook so here is my solution...

I cut a large triangle out of scrap wood then trimmed the edges with molding.

Then I covered the wooden tray with aluminum foil.

 I cut a star from roof flashing (affiliate link) then hot glued it to the top.

It worked! I transported my appetizer tree to my mother's house for Christmas Eve with no worries!

Problem solved!

It was a success all around :)
