A Little Autumn Spice Cake is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I used the idea of creating colorful fondant autumn leaves for my Thanksgiving Cake following the directions provided here. I was extremely pleased with how beautiful and colorful they all came out! I used regular cake icing for the topping. My Thanksgiving Cake was a simple rectangular carrot cake instead of the molded spice cake shown in this picture.
