Fall inspired birthday cake

Fall birthday cake

Inspired by all the beautiful colors outside. I decided to decorate my birthday cake with leaves, sunflowers, pumpkins and berries in warm colors. The flavour was almond cake, 1 layer of chocolate caramel ganache and 1 layer of applesauce vanilla mousse with apples from my moms garden.

I crumb coated the cake with the lovely Italian meringue butter cream (it is amazing to work with) and Marshmallow fondant. All the decoration was made out of modelling paste and I painted the leaves with petal dust colors, mixed with alcohol.

You can see another fall cake that I’ve made in the cake gallery.

Happy Caking!

    i did not know you can cover a cake with merengue and also never tried the marshmallow paste.

    I have to make a fall wedding cake in two weeks…I think I might try the little pumpkins on it…this is adorable!!! And they want a “Shrek” cake for the groom’s cake, so I’ll use your “Littlest Pet Shop” idea for that.

    After reading all about your IMBC, I’ll have to give it a practice run this weekend, especially since you re-made yours five times just to give us step by step directions. The least I can do is try it and report back :)
