Autumn is a great time to celebrate the wonderful apple season. Even if you don't get to go apple picking you can decorate your cakes in the Autumn theme.
The cake below is a 9" round, double layer cake.
The side of the cake is done in the basket weave technique. This can be done with a little patience and a lot of practice.
The apples are made from red fondant, shaped into macintosh apples
The leaves on the apples are made from Jellied Mint leaves and the stem is made from Tootsie
rolls, shaped into the stems.
The apples have red edible glitter on them and the leaves have green edible glitter on them.
