Martha's Mocha Spice

Oh Martha, you've done it again!  Martha Stuart, and her amazing recipes- you really can't beat it!  I was a little uncertain at first sight of this combination, but it was a taste explosion!!  I introduce to  you: Mocha Spice Cake with Chocolate Buttercream

In honor of autumn, I wanted to create some realistic fall leaves.  Although those in nature don't generally have glitter, I believe I did I pretty fantastic job here =) 

Time for your close-up!  
I swirled leaf green, meadow green, gold, and brown gumpaste to achieve the perfect color for this project.  I cut the leaves free-hand, before pressing them into their veiner.  They were dusted with a combo of green and gold luster dust.

Okay, I know the flowers look a little more Christmas than fall, but I still like it =)
