This technique is one I use when making lots of sugarpaste leaves when modelling a small tree or plant, when leaf cutters are too large. It’s one I’ve used on lots of cakes, but here’s a picture of the way I used it a couple of different ways on the cake which won me a gold a few years ago at Cake International 🙂 Sugarpaste leaves
And this is how you make them!
1. Roll a small piece of green sugarpaste into a smooth ball. 2. Roll the ball into a sausage shape, making sure it is not too thin. 3. Using the end of a paintbrush press into the sausage shape as shown in the picture. 4. Pinch the paste at either end. The leaf is made!

Tutorial for how to create a simple leaf effect on sugarpaste trees

A quick ‘how to decorate today’ rather than a recipe to share 🙂
I’ve used this technique on a few cakes, most recently on the sides of this Fireman Sam cake.
It’s super simple, and quick to do, but adds a bit of texture and interest to your cake.
What to do:
1. Colour some sugarpaste green. It can be marbled, you don’t need to colour it completely.
2. Roll out the paste to make it thinner, and pull off the desired size.
3. Tidy up the edges, and make into a ‘cloud’ shape.
4. Use a daisy cutter, or similar flower and press randomly into the paste (without cutting all the way through), over and over again to create a texture which gives the impression of lots of leaves.
5. Stick it on the top of your ‘trunk’, which can be made using a lump of brown sugarpaste, flattened slightly and score lines into it with a knife.
6. Add as many as you need to create the desired effect.
