Elvish Leaf Cupcake topper

In celebration of the upcoming move "The Hobbit" I created this Elvish leaf topper for 'Lord of the Rings' cupcakes.
Pear flavored salt water taffy. I got these from Cupid's Tooth candy shop.

First roll out your taffy with a rolling pin to make it flat.

Using a leaf template cut out your shape.

Press the blade of your knife into the taffy to create leaf designs.

Using the remaining taffy, squeeze and roll together to form a vine.

Roll out taffy to lengthen and stretch.

Shape the vine to curl around your leaf for an Elvish looking topper for your Lord of the Rings Cupcakes.
