My friend of 50 years, (we grew up together) loves apple decor. The apples would have turned out better if I would have used fondant, I used chocopan and it was way too soft. Apples were mini cc covered with chocopan, painted with luster dust and sprinkled with food glitter. She liked her cake, despite imperfections and sloppy basketweave, not to mention how awful the color the icing turned out. She loved the chocolate luster dusted leaves.
