There are a couple of real nice rooster cakes posted on here. Can anyone tell me what is the best way to make the feathers (short and long)? I really like

You can just use leaf molds to cut feathers out of fondant or modeling chocolate. Or you could just pipe the feathers on with a large petal tip.
