My MIL's birthday is next week and she's comissioned me to make a cake for her to take into the office. Originally I'd planned on doing an orange fondant covered cake with a black spiderweb. That is until she told me the other day she wanted leaves on it... So now I have to shift my whole plan. My husband suggested doing a pile of leaves with a rake or something, but I'm worried that it will just look like a lump... has anyone tried something like that? Or if not, do you have another suggestion as to what I can do with leaves? I don't want it to look too wedding cake-ish, though... Thanks in advance for any and all input.
