In advance, using gum past and the smaller leaf cutter in set to cut 75 leaves (cut extras to allow for breakage). Place leaf on thin foam and use veining tool to imprint veins in leaves; let dry on cornstarch-dusted board. For monogram, combine a 50/50 mixture of fondant and gum paste. Roll into a 3/8 in. diameter log and shape in desired letter. Let dry on waxed paper dusted with cornstarch.

This cake is great for a more sophiscated look. Makes a great bridal shower cake, having the bride's new initial on the cake. Don't wait till last minutes to create the initial. It needs to dry so that when you move it to the cake, it doesn't smear the fondant.
