Turning Leaves {A Fall Cake Challenge}

I was asked to be a part of a fall cake challenge by Kathia of Pink Little Cake and Melissa of The Baked Equation. These ladies are super talented cake artists so this was quite the honor for me. We could choose any of the following categories: creative cake, cupcake, sugar topper or recipe. I chose to make a creative cake because I don’t get to make cakes that often and it would give me some practice. This is what I came up with.

This design was a happy accident. My original design was not going to work so I had to come up with plan B. Let’s just say that I stare at this picture a lot. I put it on my screen at work. I am in love with this cake! It has it’s flaws but to me it is perfect.
If you would like to see how the fall tree was made here is a video tutorial.
If you would like to purchase a tree cutter like the one I used you can find it at Plastics in Print here.
Look at all the other designs in this challenge! They are amazing! This is why I love what I do. I get to meet so many talented artists. Please stop by everyone’s pages and show them some love.
Thanks for stopping by! Tomorrow I will show you another fun project I was a part of.
Happy creating!

  16. The cake is beautiful. Love how it portrays fall in it’s beautiful colors. I recently started looking into cake decorations and curious what tip you used to make the leaves. I am also curious what frosting you used, if home made, any recipes you are willing to share?
