Sock Monkey Wedding Cake Topper with Peacock Feathers

When I got an order for a sock monkey wedding cake topper that needed to incorporate calla lilies, hydrangea, and peacock feathers I was a little stuck.  The feathers needed to be subtle enough not to overwhelm the monkeys, but there is nothing subtle about peacock feathers!  

I kept cutting them down and repositioning them until I felt good about it.  I used gold clay with green mica powder in the base to give it a shimmery look to match the feathers.

I received pictures from the wedding yesterday, and I have to say WOW, what a beautiful cake!




 And just look at the gorgeous bride and groom:

Calla lilies, hydrangea, and peacock feathers are a few of my favorite things, in this case a tricky job for you. But, you pulled it off beautifully. Great job!
