Chocolate Autumn Leaves Cake

one morning while visiting my sister in law in Connecticut I was inspired to do a bundt chocolate cake and decided to decorate with chocolate leaves. The melted milk chocolate (not dark) was brushed on the back of real clean fallen autumn leaves picked from around the yard and was left to cool until I can easily peel them right off. I used various greens and red and yellow powder colors that i mixed in a bit of shortening so i can brush easy on the chocolate leaves to give it some depth. The wild mushroom were chocolate dipped cookie sticks and then I grated some chocolate block around to look like dirt. We enjoyed the afternoon with this chocolate bundt with coffee and hot cocoa in the patio on that cool breezy autumn afternoon…
