Beautifully colored maple leaves in shades of golden yellow, orange, and red are the perfect gumpaste cake decorations for a wedding cake in the fall. Nothing captures the elegance of the season quite like these striking autumn maple leaves.
This listing is for 10 maple leaves: 5 of the large (approx 4") and 5 of the small (approx 2.5") leaves. If you need different sizes, quantities, or colors I would love to create a custom order for you.
Due to the handmade nature of each flower, they may look slightly different from the picture. I do my best to match colors and styles, but just like nature, there might be some unique differences!
If you need a custom order, please don't hesitate to ask! Turn around time for custom orders may vary so please let me know when your event is.
If you need your flowers sooner, I can upgrade your shipping to Priority Express. Just send me a message for information and price quotes.
Each flower is carefully packaged to ensure your flowers arrive in the same perfect condition they left in! I double-box the flowers and use lots of foam padding to protect from breakage.
Breakage is always a risk, however, but each package is insured. If your flowers are damaged beyond repair, please send me a picture so I can start a claim form for you. That way, I’ll be able to send you a new flower to replace the damaged one!
Please note that these flowers are not edible. Although these flowers are made with edible materials (gumpaste, sugar, egg whites, and shortening are my main ingredients) they do contain non-edible materials and are not for consumption. Many flowers contain wires, which should not be place directly into cakes.
Gumpaste can last almost indefinitely if taken care of properly. Keep your flowers away from light, moisture, and heat to keep them preserved. Humidity and temperature changes from refrigeration may cause flowers to melt.
Thank you for taking a look at my listings, and please know that I am available to answer any more questions for you as well!
I'll do my best to meet these shipping estimates, but can't guarantee them. Actual delivery time will depend on the shipping method you choose.

I am happy to make custom sugar flower orders for you! Please share with me your event date, the size of your cake, the colors you're using, any inspiration photos (bouquets, other cake photos, etc), and I'll work with you to create something unique. Custom orders may take longer to create, so be sure to place your order in advance, I recommend at least 4-6 weeks before your event!
Gumpaste flowers have an extremely long shelf life, due to their sugar content and low moisture. As long as the flowers are taken care of properly, they'll last for years! Keep the flowers out of direct sunlight (it can fade the colors) as well as extreme heat/cold, and especially out of humidity. Some refrigerators are very humid, and can cause the flowers to melt, so I recommend placing the flowers on your cake before serving. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me. Each flower arrives in a box suitable for storage and comes with a care guide.
Processing time is typically 1-2 weeks. Some larger orders, like the arrangements or a custom order, may take 3 weeks. Shipping takes 3 days via USPS Priority Mail.
If you are concerned about your order arriving in time, please contact me with your event date to confirm that the flowers will arrive before your event. If you need your flowers within 2 weeks, please select "Rush Processing" at checkout.
There is also a "Rush Shipping" option, so that your flowers will arrive in 1-2 days via USPS Priority Express.
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any other questions!
