fall inspired edible apple decorations...

You can now purchase these here!

Since you all know now about my obsession love for everything Fall, I guess you figured it was just a matter of time before something showed up on our Etsy. The husband and I had some free time last weekend (I'm as shocked as you are!!) to do what I've been wanting and needing to do for some time- experiment with new edible decorations.

I really feel like this is where I am supposed to be right now- blogging and creating these little cuties. I enjoy it so much. Seriously guys, whenever I read or hear about how cute a decoration is, or receive a thank you from a customer saying what a hit they were, my heart flutters in my chest. It's just so great. I receive so much joy from making these guys because they allow you to then make them your own by placing them on top of your tasty treats. I'm sure your party guests just think you're the neatest thing, and that's fabulous in my eyes.

So while experimenting, my husband (you know, the ever talented Bill Main...) made the sweetest little apple stencils. Yes, every decoration we do (with the exception of the hearts and X's and O's) are custom made stencils by this super artistic man. It allows us to truly call our decorations our own. Then each thing is hand colored, hand cut, and sometimes hand painted on to bring each decoration to life. With the apples, as he was cutting each one out, I was creating little tiny leaves and stems to really tie the whole thing together. We decided to adhere our apples to a creamy circled background (edible too) to give our apples a very simplistic and chic look. 

Perfect on top of an apple spice cake with cream cheese frosting, or cupcakes...I really hope you guys love these as much as we do!
