A tail that stand out from the cake

List of Materials

  • fondant tylo powder or flowerpaste. Tulip, leaf, rose or oval cutter for tailfeather. Flower wier or flower stamen for “crown”


mix tylopowder and fondant . Roll a thin plate and cut it en a big drop shape. Use a big bowl og vase to dry it in, so it get at slightly curved shape.
Dry at least 4 days.


I´m not very good to modeling stuf, but the peacock isent very hard to do, You make A long 3D drop , and press the neck up and the tail down. And the head you press between you fingers in a cone shape at make details with a modeling tool.
Its havde to dry for at least 4 days


Place the thin “plate” on the assembled cake and adjust the size, by cutting from the bottom, so its rest on the “ground”. Begin to glue the feathers on, starting from the bottom I just use water and patience :D

I place the bird with a clump of fondant, so the rump is on the edge of the cake. Then i place the last of the feathers.

What a unique cake. If someone had described all of these elements to me I'd have said, "no way will that look good...it's just too over-the-top," but what you did with it is truly lovely! It's absolutely a wedding cake all about love, happiness & sweetness. Thanks for sharing this!

I noticed you started with a green cake and multi-colored feathers. Do you have a pic of that finished cake? It looks great in all white, too. Very elegant.

good idea

sister1 Says... 2012-07-04 11:00:30

both the peacock cake and the insides demo were both recently done on yummyarts by Amanda Hamilton and Tammy Utley. Amanda did the peacock with gold tones on the feathers for a wedding cake and Tammy did a whole series of insides.

thanks for the information sister1 :D maybe they could have shared here, so I could have avoided the the agony of by finding a solution on my own. I made a tutorial over a year a go on SkandinavianCakeDekorators perhaps she learned it there :D
