Hey everyone,
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?

Thanks!

Hi,

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.

I found this pic on-line and used it as inspiration.
