Where can I buy these really big, colorful feathers? (and how do you attach them to the cake? Do you just stick them in?)

The letter look like Tappits and you can buy the feathers at many fabric and/or craft stores. Put a drinking straw into the cake and put the feathers into the straws.

Hobby lobby sells these feathers. there is a wire in them so if you unravel the stem part and take out the wire they will then be short enough for your cake. you will still need to insert the ends into drinking straws before pushing them into your cake. Leah is right, the letters are Tappits.

the feathers like that can get expensive. (like $3.00-4.00 each) they are called Ostrich Spads. (Plumes tend to fall apart and are WAY too long.) I used to buy feathers from a company called Eskay Novelty when I did some costume design work. They were only $10.00 for a dozen at the time and came in about 60 colors. (Big money saver when I needed like 200 or so feathers at once.) You should be able to find them through a Google search. Just a tip!
