For my family's Thanksgiving 2010 dinner, I decided to make a fall themed cake. To cover the cake, I tinted the fondant brown. (TIP: either buy brown fondant or use cocoa mix to assist with the tinting process). I then created several leaves using green, orange, yellow, and red tinted 50/50 fondant/gum paste mix. (TIP: the leaves have to sit overnight to harden). I attached the leaves to the cake using small dabs of chocolate icing. The cake was enjoyed by all and was DEVOURED by the next morning!!
I made a cake for my friend Jenny's 27th birthday. I decided to go with a girly theme for this cake. The buttercream icing was tinted pink and I decorated the cake with a purse and shoes (two of Jenny's favorite things!)
