I decided that because I don't see the beautiful autumn colors that a lot of you do when I look outside, I was going to make some of my own.
Take small pieces of assorted fondant colors and mix them together. Don't mix too much though or you will end up with plain brown. Roll out the fondant and using a leaf cookie cutter cut out leaves. No two will be alike. Then using the back of a butter knife score some veins in each leaf.
To get my leaves to stand up on the top of the cupcakes, I very carefully pushed a toothpick up through the center of each and then pushed the other end of the toothpick into the cupcake.
