Muffin Tin Monday - leaves & harvest

Leaves and harvest were on the agenda for this week's assigned theme for Muffin Tin Monday. Technically, "trees" were also part of the theme assignment, but I didn't really incorporate that part. I barely eeked this one together as it was! :)

MTM leaves, harvest

The top row of this muffin tin holds turkey bologna roll-ups on fall leaf food picks, orange jello in an orange shaped silicone cup and colby cheese leaves.

I really like the way the cheese leaves came out. :) The colby cheese gives a nice fall leafy mottled effect and a few light strokes with a red food-safe marker provides nice vein detail very easily. :)

The bottom row of the muffin tin lunch holds a leaf-shaped carrot pumpkin muffin (it was baked in a leaf-shaped muffin pan)(same recipe and pan as I used in the pumpkin themed Muffin Tin Monday tin)

Also in that bottom row are Bugles to represent the cornucopia and "harvest", and lastly there are apple slices in the bottom right, another nod to harvest. :)

For more MTM trees, leaves and harvest tins pop on over to check them out! :)

Perfect tin! Love how you veined the cheesy leaves and Bugles..I love those things! What a perfect idea for the cornucopia!

You're right. Those cheese leaves are just awesome. What kind of food pens do you use? I have Wilton and the point isn't fine enough to do that kind of thing.
