Where do I find petal dust and can you specifically tell me how to "pass them through steam??" Thanks!!
Petal dust can be found at your bakery supply place... Even Wilton carries a few colors. I will boil water on the stove and then quickly pass the gumaste through the steam to set the color. Some people use a garment steamer for the same thing but I like my method best. Thanks for looking!
Is the technique you used on the leaves easier then doing them out of tinteded fondant? I have a wedding coming up, and client wants fall leaves on 100 cupcakes instead of a cake....Looking for the cutters now and a way to work smarter, not harder... :)
Dusting the leaves gives a more realistic look to the leaves because you can blend the colors together instead of just a one color fondant. Each leaf will have several colors - it is a bit more time consuming but it does go faster once you get the hang of it and have all the colors and brushes out. Good luck with the cupcakes! Lisa
Did you use buttercream to attach the leaves to the cake?
Yes, just a dab of buttercream on the back sticks it to the cake buttercream. :) Lisa
Just beautiful colours are great
