I have been dying to give an ode to the beautiful fall season in Frankfurt especially after the chocolate leaves left me less than impressed. My love for fondant work continues so I decided to make some autumn themed fondant creations.
I started with leaves, the quintessential symbol of autumn. I imprinted them using embosser sticks. On the embossing sticks I added edible lustre paste by mixing the lustre dust with a little bit of water. I brushed this paste onto the embossing stick and created an sparkly imprint on my autumn leaves creating simple but sophisticated fondant leaves.
I created a pumpkin very easily by creating a small ball, adding a small stem of brown fondant, scoring it with a toothpick and wrapping some green vein made of fondant around two toothpicks to give it its curl.
To complete my autumn set, I made baby acorns, using a tutorial I found online. Let’s face it, baby acorns are much cuter than regular-sized acorns.
Four simple vanilla cupcakes, topped with a smooth, creamy frosting and all dolled up to celebrate the season. I hope these were enjoyed by their new owners!
