Autumn leaves cupcake


For the toppers:

  • 150g of modelling divided and coloured into various Autumn colours.

For the cupcakes:

Try making these lovely autumnal cupcakes with the kids one afternoon as they really are simple but produce great results. Let them do most of the work and see how proud they are of their creations!



Step 1

These leaves are best made the night before you need them, or well before as they keep for about 6 months in a breathable cardboard cake box.

Colour your paste into various Autumn colours. If you have some, rub a touch of Trex into your hands before colouring, this will act as a barrier and you’ll find it easier to get the colour off your hands.

Step 2

Mix the different colours together and roll to 2mm thick. Using the leaf cutter, cut various leaves until you have enough to cover your cupcakes.

Step 3

Vein the leaves using a veining tool or cocktail stick.

Step 4

You can add petal dust to bring up the colours slightly. I used lime green.

Step 5

Leave you leaves to dry on a drying sponge or greaseproof paper. Ice cube trays are great for drying too as you can curl the leaves over the edges.

Step 6

Bake and ice your cupcakes

Step 7

Place the dried leaves onto the tops of the ice cupcakes.
