My Barbie cakes have come a long way from my first but the one that was ordered for Sat has me stumped! It is Island Barbie. I can do the dress nor prob but I need suggestions for the peacock feathers on her back! Do I make the little animals that she has with her in the movie? I have never sculpted so not sure. I was an art major but that was soooooooo long ago! I guess I am just not sure what material to do the feather in. I am a buttercream fan but these will need something else. Royal? Thanks!

I had no idea what you were talking I had to google it. Personally I would do fondant/gumpaste 50/50 mix, maybe the fine details you could paint on once it hardens. If you decide on the animals then I would use the 50/50 mix.
