Fondant Leaves is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great completment to my fondant flowers. I take two different colors of fondant (2 different greens or orange and yellow) and roll them side by side, then attach them lengthwise, rolling the seam clean. Take the cutter and place half on one side of color and half on the other. This gives a double colored leaf. Turning the cutter different directions gives different looks. Using marblized fondant also looks good. When I am really in a wild mood, I use bright unnatural leaf colors, like purple, very whimsical. I also take the fondant ball tool and shaping foam and roll just the edges a bit thinner giving the leaves a smoother look. When complete, I use pearl dust to give it that extra umph!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really love the look of fondant leaves even with butter cream icing flowers. It gives the cake more depth in color. I use the juniper green color as that tends to look more realistic. Working with fondant is like playing with modeling clay. I can redo my mistakes to make the leaves and flowers, if I am making them, look real. When they are dry, you can wipe them off lightly, store them and reuse them if you want. Fondant is a very versatile product and the leaves make any cake with flowers a hit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love how easy this is to do with the gumpaste shaping tools and yet it's still simple to accomplish with every day household items. I must have done this to a thousand leaves already!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made fondant leaves for my Thanksgiving cake and they looked amazing! I combined different colors of fondant together to give the leaves a marble look. I also cut the tops off of an egg carton and keep the bottom part of the carton. I then laid several of my leaves over the edges of the egg carton to give them different looks. My cake looked great!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The cut out fondant leaves are a really easy way to add some foliage to your other flowers or the cake itself. A little veining and some petal dust and you are on your way to some beautiful cakes. In my experience I would recommend rolling the fondant out pretty thin to give it a more realistic look though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fondant leaves look much better than buttercream. I recommend taking a fondant/gum paste class, a little technique goes a long way in making a cake beautiful. It is so easy to put details in the leaves and other flowers to make them look real. It's amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are beautiful and so easy to make. The Wilton set comes with S-M-L cut-outs so I often make some of each and keep on hand for last minute decorating needs. Looks great with Fodant Ribbon Roses.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from SUPER easy... to get a more realistic look i roll them fairly thin (not quite see through) and crumple up tissues into a cup and drop them in to dry they then form into more realistic shapes.
