Make a few acorns......using tip 13 or 14 pipe a circle of brown/tan icing then use tip 3 to make the center. Put the tip into the center of the ring and squeese; pull up as you are doing this. They are small....about the size of a dime; no bigger than a nickel.
Make a mix of orange, red, yellow, brown, &/or green in your piping bag. (Don't actually mix the colors, layer them one on top of the other). Use tip 350 ro 352 to pipe leaves. The border(s) could be leavesicon_smile.gif

Cr ch can be difficult to smooth. For the most part the best method might be a hot knife. Have a pitcher of boiling hot water; dip your (metal decorating) spatula into it, shake off well then smooth the icing. Must be wiped &/or dipped after each swipe. You want the heat of the hot water, but NOT the wetness do the smoothing.

I have to admit that I am not much of a rose fan, so I was thinking that maybe some sunflowers would be a nice flower for a fall cake. They go along with the pumpkins, acorns and leaves perfectly! Good Luck! icon_smile.gif

You can also make your acorns with caramel squares by shaping them and then dipping the top in chocolate... I learned that on here! YUM!
