Bake cake in 9" x 13" pan as directed on recipe. Allow cake to cool and place on serving tray. Tint approximately 3 cups of icing dark blue by using a combination of royal blue and navy. Ice entire cake in blue. Reserve extra icing and place in piping bag fitted with #16 to pipe border after cake is decorated. Color small amount of icing black and green. Fill a pastry bag with black icing and start by using a #8 to pipe the trunk of the base. Switch to using a #4 and then a #2 as you need to make smaller branches. Fill a pastry bag fitted with #233 with green icing. Start at the bottom edge of the cake and pull toward the top of the cake to create grass across the bottom of the cake. Use your reserved blue icing to pipe a shell border on bottom edge and reverse shell border on top edge. Decorate with plastic picks.
