Fondant Succulents

I made this cake and cupcakes for my sisters wedding which was a small ceremony on Friday and then a reception on Saturday. She was specific in what she wanted on Saturday and told me I could do whatever I wanted on Friday.

Her colors were green and brown and had a nature feel. My friend stephanie did a cake with a large succulent on it and I was inspired to do this cake from that. I used my flower petal cutters (3 sizes and a rose cutter to make the different "petals" For the succulent I just attached them with the "pointy side" facing out. I used parchment paper inbetween the petals if they were drooping until they dried and could stand on their own. The cake was red velvet and the cupcakes were a mixture of carrot and blueberry  from the excess batter for the Saturday wedding cake.
I used this cutter set and used these pieces to make the succulents

I followed this tutorial over at Sweet Creations By Stephanie  on how to make fondant dahlias but I just turned the petals around so the pointy parts are facing outward. The other kind of succulents I used the rose cutter and cut the petals apart. I then dusted the edges with purple petal dust (not luster dust)

These fondant succulents are beautiful! I am doing the cupcakes for my friend's wedding and she has a succulent theme, do you mind me asking where you bought the fondant cutters to make the leaves?
