Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: Key Lime cake, Cream Cheese Icing, Fondant & Gumpaste, Pearl Luster Dust....lots of time!!!

What are you most proud of? (I met the challenge & didn't bail!) When the bride saw it she cried....she absolutely loved it! It made me tear up with pride.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be prepared to spend many hours of prep work. Figure out how you want to design the bird, what size you want, play with fondant and gum paste, get the shape you want, play with colors if you want to add color. We were originally going to add lime green & dark blue luster dust to some of the heart ruffles, but she decided the pearl was more elegant and "wedding like". Use lots of dowel rods to keep it together. I assemble it on the cake stand and then transported it with everything but the head on.

Unusual, but beautiful.

I like the use of the heart cutter to make the feathers. Very nice!

Lovely...lovely.... I have been asked to do a peacock wedding cake as well but I am trying to figure out how to assemble them and as you have mentioned you did assemble the whole cake but left the head to be assembled at the venue....but how did the feathers stay put...especially the bottom part... let me know please :-)
