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:
