Sunday Sweets: An Ostentation of Peacock [Cake Wrecks]

Sunday Sweets: An Ostentation of Peacock: "I recently stumbled across a gaggle of peacock cakes... Gaggle? No, that's not right. {Googling...}

I recently stumbled across a muster of peacock cakes that were too beautiful not to share with the world. I also learned that there are a lot of interesting words that mean 'a lot.' Lets explore both, shall we?

This peafowl has quite the colony of tail feathers:

Beautiful elegance in a modern design.

This cluster of tail feathers is much more classical:


I really love the bushel of...uh...talent on display here:


And the hand-painted trees and tail are really fantastic.



This profusion of posies makes the perfect perch for a pretty peacock.


The gold detail in this litter of feathers is just enchanting:

And the peacock is white chocolate! Mmmmmm... peacock.

Now for some abstract beauties.

The parcel of hand-drawn lines on this modern design is so intricate:

I want to throw this into an episode of Mad Men where they do a commercial for NBC.


This wedding cake doesn't have the skein of feathers that the other cakes do...

...but I love the sparing use of peacock detail.


The plethora of mosaic tiles here really sets this bird apart...


...and the cackle of tail feathers is abstractly beautiful.

This trio of cakes showcases some stunning Mehndi designs:


That peacock is pure beauty.


I'm totally in love with this wedding cake:


The menagerie of metallics is stunning.

And finally, just wait until you see the coterie of tiers this next cake has to offer:

That's a blown-sugar peacock on top. Let's take a closer look:


So frilly and delicate, it's more beautiful than a kaleidoscope of butterflies. (Yes, that's really what you call a group of butterflies. Awesome, right?)
