Could you possibly purchase peacock feathers? From a craft store maybe? If not, check out http://cakecentral.com/gallery/329413/peacock-cake.

Maybe a combination of shapes of different colors of fondants and a little hand-painting with gel color + lemon extract or luster dust + lemon extract.

There. Their. They're not the same.

I hope I die before "your" becomes the official contraction of "you are."

Making a peacock tail feather out of fondant is quite easy. I use a specialized mold I designed to turn them out fairly quickly. I've posted a "how to" video on Youtube if you'd like to see how I do it.

The link is http://youtu.be/1ieRVHav-8M
