For more Christmas inspirations, do follow my "Christmas Recipes" board on Pinterest.


For my first post, I would like to share a simple idea on how to make an edible Christmas tree.  This would make a great centerpiece at your Christmas dinner or party you are holding, and best of all, you get to eat it afterwards.

Edible Christmas tree - pretty and healthy ;)
A brilliant creation of Baby Sumo's Hubby

What you need:
For the tree - Sugar snap peas, split in the middle 
For the baubles - Cherry tomatoes
For the base - Homemade hummus - recipe here
For the top - A star or fairy. I used a dried flower from my potpourri jar (non-edible)
A large wooden board

Decorate as above photo on the wooden board. To eat, dip the sugar snap peas in hummus. You can also prepare other vegetable sticks such as carrots and celery.

Note: To make the tree entirely edible, you can use a slice of starfruit for the top of the Christmas tree. :)
