can you tell me your secret on the different types of leaves, I would love to make this one this week.
I found a tutorial on the Wilton site for mums & asters. The mums are the smaller flowers, asters are larger. The leaves are a maple and an oak from a Wilton cookie cutter set I found at Hobby Lobby. I just pressed into the icing, outlined, and filled in with stars. (I have a scarecrow in my gallery that shows them better) If I had it to do over again, I would have outlined the leaves with a darker color & filled in with the lighter colors to make them stand out more. Hope that helps. Good luck!
Thanks! Did you do the flowers in medium buttercream?
Everything is buttercream. Just the regular consistency I use for everything else. I've never used fondant yet. Have to try that sometime soon.
Pretty. I love the fall colors.
Your handwriting is impeccable---great job!
Thanks! That was thanks to a calligraphy class that the local high school art dept held. And a toothpick to sketch before the frosting hits the cake!
that's a very pretty cake..nice job! I also like when people give me creative freedom :)
I like the colors, well done!
Beautiul...I, too love the "creative freedom" & ditto on the handwriting. The sheer ribbon is nice, did you just lay it on top?
Yes, the ribbon is laid on top with a touch of bc to hold iti n place. If you look close, you can see a few mums on top of it to anchor it down.
