I had to do so much work for this cake, and I enjoyed every second of it. The peacock body was made out of rice crispies, and it took me several tries to get it right. The process to make the peacock feathers took a very long time. I decided to make trial feathers with different colors, and I had my parents choose their favorite feathers. This way, I could decide which color combinations looked better together. You can find pictures of them in the slideshow below. After the feather was chosen, I had to make replicas of it. Getting the feathers to look almost identical was somewhat hard, but I was up for the challenge. Luckily, on Thursday I had a snow day, and this allowed me to start and finish the feathers of the cake. I was really pleased with the end result of the feathers.
