Make 3 thick pancakes and use star cutters to cut out stars from large size to small. If you don't have star cutters, then make 7 pancakes for each tree, from a large one and smaller and smaller to the smallest.
Add your desired amount of sugar to the heavy cream and beat until it reaches the soft peaks stage. Prepare the fruit and the toppings.
Put some of the whipped cream on each of the stars and stack them up.
If the cream squishes out a bit at the sides, it looks like snow and gives a surface for the toppings to cling to.
Last, garnish with a festive pick. If you try to stick it in through all of it, it will collapse, so just stick it through the top two layers.
You have two trees ready to be decorated as you like! This one has a ribbon pick!

Story Behind this Recipe
I wanted to make something a bit lighter than a regular cake, so I made this using pancakes and simple items from the 100 yen shop. It looks like it has snow, so it's very Christmas-like.
The key is to make the pancakes thicker than usually. If you use a store-bought mix of about 150 g, it will make 3 pancakes. You can also use store-bought sponge cake. I used frozen blueberries. If you eat this the day after, the pancakes are even more moist and delicious.
