Did you know that today is National Cake Decorating Day? Well, neither did I - until yesterday. I ran across this odd holiday and promptly decided it must be celebrated! What better way than to decorate a cake, right? It's really feeling like fall around here, so I decided to go with the autumnal theme. :) So fun to make!

Top row: 6" carrot cakes and mini cupcakes cooling, coloring sugar red, dipping frosted cupcake tops in sugar, frosting the top of the 6" cake and covering with more sugar.
Bottom row: Mini cupcakes with hole poked in center, making marshmallow fondant, using a mixture of vanilla and brown color to paint the fondant (removing powdered sugar and adding more dimension), using knife to score veins in all the multi-colored fondant leaves.
