This looks close:
Also there is a peacock feather mold on Etsy:
And on eBay:
i love the one on the middle link ... from etsy.
but i need to make these out of fondant - any suggestions on how to?
Most likely a mold. Not sure how you would do it without one.
If you want to make those out of fondant, roll your fondant out, texture it with a textured rolling pin or mat, cut leaf patterns and take a small round tip (3 or 4) and cut the holes in it if you want. You can take a knife and lightly fray the edges for a more "rough" look. Dry on crinkled tin foil so they don't dry flat -- they'll have some movement. After they are dry you can attach them with melted white chocolate right to the outside of the cake. You can also make them on wires if you prefer, but it's not necessary.
thanks a bunch guys!
going to try again ... wish me luck! i'll post pictures if i ever manage to make them properly. lol
bob.... great detailed description... I wanna try it too!
Hi I have that mold. I use it to make feathers on birds. I will try and find it and let you know where I got it.
And yes it is a leaf mold
OK back again, They are on Chefrubber.com
When you go to the home page click on Molds and Rings
Then go to Food grade silicone molds
Then scroll down to Heirloom molds
Half way down page one is medium fancy leaf
On page two is a small fancy leaf
Hope this helps I couldn't get the link to come through
Wildrose- thanks for finding this.
I was going to order it ... Its just perfect for what I needed it for! But with shipping, it comes close to $100. (I'm in canada) ... Guess I'll just have to check my local supplier to see if they have a similar one.
Think your pic is using Earlene's moulds - there is a very similar peacock cake in her "Others Cakes
Lets see if this link stays...
and it is using the 'Betty' enhanced mould
Oh I'm so sorry, I wish you could purchase them. I just wanted to share the info because I knew the
mold shape. I hope you can find it somewhere else.
Jennifer I kept looking and Petalcrafts has the same design, if you were to buy only one and then plus shipping would that be too much? I think it is cheaper than the last place I mentioned. They only have the one leaf it's under embellished molds. Hope this helps.
Guess what!? I was able to get the molds from ChefRubber ...
Turns out there is something wrong with their site and only allowing the one REALLY expensive shipping option.
Shipping ended up only being $15-20.
Thanks so much WildRose ... you're a life saver!!
I'm so happy I was able to help you.
The cake is due jan 27th .. So I will be sure to post picutres once its done.
Oh, wow, that turned out beyond stunning!
