Homemade Holly Berries

Use a pair of kitchen scissors to trim each peel into several 1 1/2″ long pieces, with the ends shaped in a “V” at each end, ( like this: <>).  Press these “leaves” into frosting of a cake or cupcake. Press several fresh cranberries at the end of each set of leaves. Perfection!
