Fill two cake pans with red on the outside ring and one with green on the outside. Bake as directed and allow cakes to cool. Place one cake with red outside ring on cakeboard. Spread thin layer of buttercream. Place cake with green outside on top. Spread another layer of buttercream and place final layer on top. Cover entire cake with buttercream. Use the tip of an offset spatula and touch the icing and pull away; repeating all over cake to create swirls. Use a pastry bag fitted with #16 and pipe shell border around bottom edge of cake. Sprinkle mini trees over border. Place royal icing figures on top of cake.
