I was walking through the hobby store when I came across this cute little peacock feather wreath. I made a comment about how it would make a really cute cake stand. Before I left the store I already had all the details worked out in my head and bought a few things too boot!
I covered the tiers in fondant and then airbrushed them gold. I made some fondant in some of those peacock colors and used them for draping and the border. Then I topped and placed the peacock feathers all around. The jewels are actually a pair of earrings that I ordered super cheap online. They arrived the day I was working on the cake and when I opened them, they were already broken! Even though I couldn't wear them as earrings, they still looked great as my swag connectors!
Just goes to show that cake inspiration can come from the darnedest places!
PS - Happy Birthday to the best mother-in-law a girl could ever hope to have! Have an awesome birthday Trish!
