Cake with fall leaves

Autumn cake

I have made this fall inspired cake for a reception I went to. The leaves were painted with powdered food colors mixed with clear alcohol in beautiful fall colors. I also made some red berries and some very simply brown mice to adorn the cake. All decorations are made in gum paste.

Last time I made a cake with this design was 6 years agoe for my 30th Birthday. Back then the cake looked like this:

2 tier Fall cake

I have another Birthday cake (my own) comming up very soon and this will also be decorated with a touch of fall I think.

Happy Caking!
