1Prepare fondant decorations at least one day in advance of serving cake.
For the leaf shape, use fondant roller to roll out fondant 1/16 thick. Cut 6 strips each: 5 x 3/8, 4-1/4 x 3/8 and 3 x 3/8. Place under flap on storage board. Starting with shortest strip, fold in half and pinch ends together; pinch folded end to a point. Repeat for next largest strip, forming a loop around first loop, pinching ends together; pinch folded end to a point. Repeat with the largest strip. Make five additional sets of loops. Let decorations dry on their side on a cornstarch-dusted surface.
For the teardrop shape, roll out fondant 1/16 thick. Cut 6 strips each 6-1/2 x 3/8 and 3 x 3/8 and 18 strips that are 2 x 3/8. Place under flap on storage board.
For heart shapes, fold 6-1/2" x 3/8" strips in half (point of heart); bring ends up to form the top of the heart, curling the ends inside and leaving 1/8" open. Let dry on side on cornstarch-dusted surface.
Fold 3" x 3/8" strips and 2" x 3/8" strips in half to form teardrop shapes. Let dry on side on cornstarch-dusted board.
