My neighbors are avid turkey hunters. Since they are so helpful to me, I made them this cake. Shotgun shells are gumpaste, as are the leaves. The tail feathers are wafer paper painted with markers and vodka-diluted gels, while the body feathers are rice spring roll wrappers. To get the iridescence of the body feathers, I used layers of different colored luster dusts. Bottom layer is snickerdoodle, while top is caramel pecan. Filled with white chocolate ganache and covered with white ganache and white choc MFF.
