Hi! This is my first post, so hopefully Im doing it right!
I have been searching for some kind of push mold for leaves. I have to make fondant leaves for a wedding cake and I cant find any anywhere. I see some great leaves on CC with the lines in them. Would LOVE some ideas on where to find them. Thanks!

I use the Sculpey studio leaf sets. They've got a cutter and a veiner for each leaf in the kit. They work for cookies too (put fondant on top and use the veiner on that). It's not a push mold, you roll the fondant, use the veiner and then cut the shapes. Dry on crumpled foil for a natural shape.

I used wilton push pad on my cake, it worked really good but took alot of time, I wasn't able to find a plunger in the town I live in. If you have a cake specialty shop in town or if you have time try global sugar art for a leaf plunger.

You might find the Makin's mold in the clay dept. of Michael's or other craft store.

I like plunger cutters because you can get the lines right on them instead of having to impress each one. Other than that, Jem has a great set of a ton of different leaf shapes and then you can use veining mats to give them their lines.

Thanks!

PME makes the plunger leaf cutters and GAS or any of the other sites will carry them and try in Michaels in the clay department, they have some leaf plunger cutters.

Global sugar art gives really fast service. I just placed an order on Monday and received it today. I did not pay extra for fast shipping.
