What was your inspiration?
This cake was iced in buttercream and I made the leaves out of gumpaste. The leaves are very easy to make and fun to color. I started out with white gumpaste and cut my leaves using maple and oak tree cutters. I crumble up paper towels and lay the leaves on them lettting some of the edges hang over. This gives more realistic leaves instead of straight flat leaves. When dry, I color them with petal dust and then quickly pass them through steam to set the color. Let them dry again and they are ready for the cake!
Hope this info helps and thanks for looking!!
