I'm doing my first wedding cake for a family from church. The bride is doing a fall theme and so I'm looking at doing hundreds of leaves for the cake. My original idea was to just start (like this weekend icon_smile.gif ) making RI leaves, my mom wondered if there was a mold that would work.

I've only seen molds for candy and cakes, where would I look for a mold that I could use with RI?

TIA

Royal icing is meant to be piped. If you want molded leaves you better go to gumpaste.

okay so if I went gumpaste could I use this http://www.globalsugarart.com/product.php?id=19307&name=Micro%20Flowers%20Mold%20(NM-077)%20by%20Sunflower%20Sugar%20Art

I'm imagining using it like I would play-do. Is that right?

Those are tiny molds, do you want something that you can use more than just for that cake? A veiner that can be used with
gumpaste flowers too?

I've never done anything with gumpaste before so I'm not sure what I want. I just need to get a lot of leaves made out of something. What would the veiner tool look like?

I use those cutters plus this mold. It makes them look very realistic and is easy!
