Rated 5 out of 5 by from I finished this cake in black & white for my mother

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Made this along with the bonnet cupcakes for my quilt guilds Spring Tea. Both were a huge success. I could never get my feathers to come out like the picture and gave up and bought a real feather that looked like the picture. No one minded that they couldn't eat the feather. I also used candy suckers in flower shapes. I am new to fondant but all in all it went well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I was asked to make this cake for a friend for Mother's Day. It seemed to big a big hit. I switched the design a little. I put a very elegant bow with pretty flowers. The feather was a bit flashy for me.
