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
