Coolest Bald Eagle Birthday Cake Design

My husband loves Eagles, he has so many!! So I decided to make him an Bald Eagle Birthday Cake Design.

This is a large round sponge cake. I have covered the entire cake with butter cream and then laid rice paper down which I had traced the eagle picture onto. Using a leaf piping gun attachment I piped each individual feather onto the cake, starting from the bottom working up so the feathers fell on top of each other naturally. I changed to a smaller leaf nozzle for the head. Once the piping was done I re drew the outlining of the picture with black icing.

It is an easy cake but I don’t think my hands have been the same after all those feathers!! lol

  1. Can you tell me which number of “puntita” you used to decorate this cake? I’sorry, but I don’t know the name in English. It is the brown and white decoration.

  2. Hi,

    Im guessing you mean the piping nozzles? I believe they are #67 and #69 leaf piping tip. I used a small one for the head and a bigger one for the lower feathers

  3. Can you send my the instructions for the cake like the outline and what is rice paper and do you cut it out then put it on the cake? please help.
