Can anyone tell me how to get the image effect on this cake? It's the one at the bottom with the turkey feathers and hunter. Also, can anyone tell me how to make rice paper turkey feathers? I understand there is a kit you can buy. Thanks fo any help!!

Your page would not display, but if you look in my pics I think you will see what you want. I purchased the shotgun shell kit from Earlene and find it easy to use. However, I thought the turkey feathers would be a "piece of cake" I could do myself. They weren't as easy as I thought they'd be. I used wafer paper, but found that a wash of color/vodka rippled and melted the material. I ended up using edible markers and wasn't as happy with the result as I'd expected to be. To attach the center quill, i soaked a skewer in water first and just carefully pressed the wafer to it.
I hope this helps you. Although I was dissatisfied, the hunter was thrilled.
