I've never used fondant, but I've seen people on TV paint directly on fondant with food coloring. That's what it looks like to me. It's beautiful, by the way!

looks hand painted to me. I'm getting ready to do a handpainted cake at the end of the month. Cover in fondant and if u use gel colors thin them down with alcohol or clear extract so it will evaporate quickly and leve the color behind.

print a bunch of leaves with an edible image printer if you have one?? or hand paint with food colouring.

What a very cool looking cake! I agree with the PP. It looks to me like it's painted directly onto the fondant. You could layer those leaves on with fondant pieces, but I think it'd be easier to paint it since it's not an intricate design.

Looks hand painted to me too. It it would take a bit of planning , but not too difficult to do. Best of luck!

Exactly what I had in mind! Thanks so much for everyone's input! Would love to hear how yours turns out Alice1230!

I have never painted but knew of the technique. The client wants it painted and I don't think it will be too bad. I'm going to try it BEFORE this though! LOL!

I think it looks like an edible image sheet.... Maybe? IDK.. But that would be an easy way (for me anyway bc I can't paint).

You have to be careful when you paint on top of the fondant like that because you see how the light colors are on top of dark colors, that usually doesn't work that well.
I thought that it was edible image but if you want to paint it practice on a piece of fondant first.

Good luck!

yep, looks hand painted to me. I'm sure you could probably use a leaf stamp, and stamp coloring onto the fondant, then hand paint the outline and veins.
Or you can stencil leaves onto the fondant and then paint the details.
