Peacock Tail Cake Tutorial

A tail that stand out from the cake

List of Materials

  • fondant tylo powder or flowerpaste. Tulip, leaf, rose or oval cutter for tailfeather. Flower wier or flower stamen for "crown"

mix tylopowder and fondant . Roll a thin plate and cut it en a big drop shape. Use a big bowl og vase to dry it in, so it get at slightly curved shape. Dry at least 4 days.

  I´m not very good to modeling stuf, but the peacock isent very hard to do, You make A long 3D drop , and press the neck up and the tail down. And the head you press between you fingers in a cone shape at make details with a modeling tool. Its havde to dry for at least 4 days   Place the thin "plate" on the assembled cake and adjust the size, by cutting from the bottom, so its rest on the "ground". Begin to glue the feathers on, starting from the bottom I just use water and patience :D

I place the bird with a clump of fondant, so the rump is on the edge of the cake. Then i place the last of the feathers.
