How to Make Fall Gumpaste Leaves

by Alice Currah on October 22, 2010

Fall in Seattle is absolutely stunning right now.  You can not drive anywhere without seeing leaves in shades of deep reds, bright oranges, golden yellows, eggplant purples and everything in between.

A few days ago I took this photo while walking with my sister-Janice, and our sons.  Even though residential and commercial development has changed the landscape of the city, Greenlake remains the same.  I’m so thankful for this and the beauty Fall brings during this time of year.

Last November I posted a detailed, step-by-step cake decorating tutorial on how to make these beautiful Fall gum paste leaves.  Inspired by my walk, I thought it was worth re-posting for anyone who wishes to take elevate their decorating skills beyond shell borders.

Here’s the original link for realistic Fall gumpaste leaves.  Have a great weekend.

A year ago, I hadn’t yet discovered your work, so I am both thrilled and grateful that you’ve shared this. It’s wonderful. (and I CLEARLY need to spend some time wandering around in your archives….)
