Autumn leaves

A previous client requested a cake for welcoming his sister on her visit from Calgary. Since it's autumn and the leaves are turning beautiful colours and our client Steve told us his sister is very much into nature we decided to make the cake an autumn theme.  Steve's only request was that we make it a chocolate cake with choc mousse for the filling.  He left the details up to us.  Here's our autumn inspired cake;

The cake is a 9" double layer cake covered in choc fondant panels which we textured in a wood grain to create our barrel.  We filled the barrel with leaves made from fondant which are shaded in various fall colours using edible dusting powders, we added a little pumpkin made from orange (choc) fondant and a couple of fondant acorns.  The welcoming tag is made from gum paste.

This cake was delivered today by my husband who informed us that our client Steve was thrilled with the cake.  We hope everyone enjoys Kim's visit and we appreciate being asked to help in welcoming her.
