On the bottom tier, I hand-painted turquoise feathers using some gel food coloring and something new called Writing Icing. The middle tier got arrows painted all around it. I used a little of the same edible gold spray paint on a paintbrush to create the points on the arrows.
Lastly, to finish the cake I made a dream catcher out of fondant. The ring was made from thick brown fondant rolled into a rope and then interlaced very thin white fondant ropes to create the strings of the dreamcatcher. I made the dangling feathers also from rolled fondant and attached matching turquoise feathers. These were just hand-formed and gave them texture by using a detail knife. I used two small gold fondant ribbons to wrap the feathers onto the brown fondant ropes before attaching them to the dreamcatcher ring.
I am so impressed how awesome this cake came out and I loved being challenged and figuring out new techniques.
