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!
