Now, this is a Christmas Tree!!! Thanks Vicki for the link and the recipe, the Glace Fruit Balls were (rich) delicious! Anne

The pineapple, the symbol of hospitality, is well-known and much-loved in Savannah, Georgia. At The Marshall House, we love it so much, we’ve been decorating our Christmas tree as this fabulous fruit for more 15 years!”

And, the website includes DIY instructions!
