Trying to find little tiny leaf molds 1/4 -3/8" for a fall themed wedding cake cookie. I would like to use gumpaste if I can. We are replicating the wedding cake in cookie form for the guest give-away.

You can use scrapbook paper punches. I have a tiny leaf cutter that I got in the dollar bin at Target, but I've seen them at Michaels too. It's pretty small. I use it to make fall leaves that I put cookies shaped like brooms. It's small enough that pressing it once with a ball tool will give it a nice-looking curve. I use fondant, but gumpaste will work too. Roll it out thin, let it dry a few minutes on each side (for fondant, gumpaste might not need to dry first), then cut into narrow strips and use it like paper in the punch.

PME cutters makes a plunger-type leaf cutter. I have one, think it came in a set of 3 or 4 (or more?) others. You can find them on Amazon, or at Global Sugar Art, too.

Hi, I am not sure how many cookies you have to do but cutting and placing all those leaves will be lots of work there is a mini plunger by Wilton out there. My suggestion is to pip the leaves in RI you can crank them out in no time.
