I just had a tasting with a bride who wants a mad hatter style cake with peacock feathers. She wants the feathers painted on the cake on not sticking out of it. I am having a hard time wrapping my brain arround this one. Any ideas to make it look good?

Thanks for your ideas.

Wow what a fabulous idea.

I think I would group a bunch of them on the tallest side of the cake and then for going around the rest of the tier, I'd start singling them out so there's just one at a time around the rest of it.

Y'know how on the peacock the big tail feathers have a high point in the middle and taper down on both sides--that's how I'd have the cake look with those other plainer feathers filling in the gaps.

But I'd play with the colors too--unless she gave you other directions--but I'd make some of it bridal white but just use a lot of texture texture texture to simulate the feathers.

Ooohhh, cool cool order!

I'm thinking a stencil would be the easiest for you...saw a thread a couple of days ago and I just went looking for it for ya, but can't find it. However, I did save one link to my faves
