Feathers and Drapes Cake
Ingredients and Supplies
  • feather cutter set
  • feather texture mats
  • white gum paste
  • pink rolled fondant
  • rolling pin
  • pastry roller
  • sharp paring knife
  • powdered sugar for dusting
  • non-stick cooking spray
  • silk white dusting powder
  • pearl dusting powder
  • pink petal dusting powder
  • mop brush
  • straight paint brush
  • piping gel
  • royal or buttercream icing
Roll gum paste very thin. If using a pasta machine, thin to a #4. Lay gum paste down on a powdered sugar dusted surface or mat. Lay lightly sprayed texture mat on top of fondant and using even pressure, roll pin over mat. Use cutter to cut the textured piece. Use paring knife to fray ends of feather, gently pulling and removing some of the pieces. This helps give the feathers a more natural look. Allow feathers to dry overnight.
Using straight paint brush, highlight edges of feathers with pink petal dust. Use mob brush to dust entire feather with silk white dusting powder to blend pink petal dust.
Mark cake for drapes and determine length and width needed. Using a 50/50 paste (half gum paste and half fondant) rolled very thin, create drapes. Dust with pearl dusting powder and attach to cake using piping gel. Use icing to attach feathers to cake. Make faux fabric roses using pink rolled fondant in desired sizes and attach to cake using icing or piping gel.
