Where do they want it?

Alot of cakes use actual real feathers inserted into a small straw or something.... or piped abstract feathers on the cake....??

What design are they looking for?

I did a peacock cake in buttercream and piped abstract ones on it but then topped it with real ones. (In photos)

Earlene Moore is extremely creative and if you have the opportunity to take a class or demo from her you won't be disappointed.

Her website is:
