Elegant Fall Cake

I chose to finish this roundup with a fall dessert.  A good cup of coffee and a piece of this cake is the fitting close to any fall day don’t you think.   This tutorial is easy to follow and the final result is amazing.    This cake is elegant because of the contrast between the elaborate leaf top and quietness of the rustic hand iced cake.  I think its beautifully done.

  1. Oh yes, the pictures definitely evoke a lot of emotions. I’m not really a fall kinda of person but these lovely ideas all make me feel peaceful and might just convince me to like fall a little more

  2. Leanna what inspiration. Each pumpkin is more beautiful then the next one. And that walnut garland simply stunning. I love fall, it is my favorite time of the year and yet I don’t really decorate for it because we only have summer and then a half baked winter of rain here. No other seasons so it robs me of my joy. Your beautiful ideas have certainly inspired me!
