Birch Bark and Fall Leaves Cake

This birch bark cake is perfect for a Fall themed wedding.
A dark chocolate-toffee rope wraps the cake, with a mix of fondant and gumpaste leaves (coloured with food colouring gel and sprayed with food colouring spray). The acorns were made of fondant and dark chocolate toffee.
I copied real pieces of birch bark to get the effect, and used edible brown and black markers to draw on the lines. Food colouring was painted on the top of each cake tier to make it look like the wood inside of cut pieces of the tree.
What's Inside?  The largest bottom tiers were made of Chunky Chocolate Blitz cake, which has a lot of different kinds of chocolate chunks, chocolate buttercream and moist chocolate cake.
The top tiers were made of layers of vanilla cake and pure raspberry buttercream icing.
