Fall Themed Cakes - Split Three-Tier Wedding Cake with Fall Leaves

The weather is starting to cool and so comes the time for Fall-themed weddings. And what is always included in a seasonal Fall wedding cake?  Leaves, leaves and more leaves!

All this week I will be posting pictures of cakes that follow a seasonal Fall theme.

The wedding cake shown here was a three tier cake, split into two parts.  The top tier sat on a giant martini glass off to the side, which followed some of the theme of this wedding and the invitations.  The leaves, made from gumpaste and fondant were sprayed with edible food spray to get just the right shade of orange to match the invitations.

The branches were made from the toffee that I use to make the chocolate TOFFLE, however, you could use dark brown fondant (add a little black colouring to brown fondant to darken it further) to get the same effect. Both the branches and leaves were attached to the cake by brushing on a little water, which makes the fondant on the cake sticky.  Once that dries, your leaves should stay on.  To secure them further, white royal icing can be used.
