Handheld Christmas tree cake bites

Christmas Tree Cookie Cutter
Duncan Hines Classic Yellow Cake Mix

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Mix cake mix, water, eggs, and vegetable oil according to instructions on the box
Grease your sheet pan with butter and flour lightly.
Spread the cake mix into the pan evenly
Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes. The cake is done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Cool the cake completely.
Mix your frosting with green food coloring. Start with 5-10 drops of food coloring and mix until you like the color you’re creating.
Cut half the sheet cake free from the pan and set aside.
Frost the other half of the sheet cake with a thin, even layer of frosting. Place the sheet cake halves one on top of the other to sandwich the frosting in between.
Cover the pan with plastic wrap and place the cake in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes, up to overnight.
Once the cake has chilled for a while, remove it from the refrigerator and cut out your shapes using your cookie cutters.
Melt chocolate chips and shortening over low heat on your stovetop, or 30-second intervals at 50% power in your microwave oven.
Lay the cut-out cakes on a cooling rack over your sheet pan.
Drizzle the white chocolate over the cakes, being careful not to create too much buildup.
Add sprinkles before the chocolate rehardens.
Decorate and serve!
