Fall Cake

This gorgeous cake was my contribution to Turkey Dinner this year. 

 Unfortunately while trying to edit this post to add a button Blogger went a little crazy.  So here’s the skinny on how I created this fab cake:
 I cut leaves out of gum paste ~ there’s a tutorial out there in blog land somewhere…


Then I placed them on a leaf covered in Saran wrap…
And rolled over them ~ cool hey!?!?
Then I mixed Vodka with Petal Dust and painted them ! {How fun is that!?!?}


I remember both Darcy and our teenager asking me if I’d been drinking LOL.
 I just loved how it turned out!  Now for a photo shoot…

Thanks for visiting!

    Gum paste, I’ve never heard of that. I watched one of those fancy cake shows and was impresseed with their new use for rice crispy to as sculpture pieces. I’ll have to try gum paste sometime, your leaves look great!

    that cake is fantastic. and as someone who teaches basic fondant classes, it is way easy. you could even buy my mom’s dvd of start to finish cake decorating to learn about it. but that is not why i am posting 🙂
    i am posting b/c a lot of people think you don’t have to put frosting under fondant…but you do. fondant is like wrapping paper, you just peel it off to get to the good stuff, lol!
    LOVE this cake (and those monster cakes…my friend and i are doing a monster party in nov. so maybe i will try the modeling choc. on that cake!)
    good luck in the future w/ cakes.
