I'm working on a little project here to get a good portfolio of cakes to show people and I have a question.....
all of the cakes I will be doing for this project require feathers as a topper......
How can i make edible feathers in different colours?
All of the cakes I've seen with feathers as a topper aren't edible, I'm not sure how successful people have been at making edible ones? You buy the feathers from a craft or cake decorating shop and put them in a posy pick.
You can make feathers from gumpaste. Roll out and cut a basic feather shape. Slice feather groves into it and cut some areas where a feather would naturally split. Lay it over some wavy foil to dry with extra shape as desired. They are delicate so make extras.
Oh that is AWESOME! exactly what I wanted! thanks!
I've seen someone make feathers with wafer paper....but i dont know how well that will hold up in FL humidity...
Holy mother of cake! That's crazy! I love it! Man, now I want to try feathers, too!
