Thanksgiving Cake

We made this cake for our family on Thanksgiving! This cake is pumpkin spice cake with a cinnamon cream cheese filling. The cake is covered in dark red fondant with dark brown branches we made by rolling the fondant in thin strips. The leaves are fondant cut out with a cookie cutter and dusted with some coloring powder and pearl dust. We attached the leaves with white frosting on the branches. Along the base of the cake is a fondant border we made using a mold and then painted it gold with edible food coloring. The letters on the top of the cake are also made of fondant which we lightly painted gold.
