Wednesday Roundup: painting Fall on cookies AND 18 other edible leaves

painted cookies for fall

For today’s post, I’m sending you away first. Follow me over to Hungry Happenings, where I guest post with a tutorial on how to paint Fall on your cookies. Beth of Hungry Happenings has one of those creative-food-blogger minds that awes me. I’ve been a longtime fan of her work and a longtime blogging friend, too, so I’m honored to visit her in her internet home.




Need more leaf in your life? Some more shades of auburn, burnt sienna, and mustard? You can eat leaves all day if you want. (Hmmm, now I’m thinking of all the ways we eat actual leaves, both for health and for fun. I actually mean food-that-looks-like-leaves. I promise.)



Here are 18 clever ideas for eating your daily dose of leaves this fall, from breakfast to dessert:

Start your morning with some Fall leaves pancakes at i am baker.

Make Fall cupcakes topped with cake leaves at 1 Fine Cookie. Cake on cake!

Mist beautiful color on leaf cookies at The Adventures of Sweet Sugarbelle.
