What has happened to feather icing? I know when I was younger, it seemed the last word in sophistication to have a cake with feather icing. So simple when it’s done well, and such an utter dogs’ breakfast* otherwise.
This dessert table (now there is something ubiquitous that is, at least, both beautiful and tasty!) has chevron-striped icing, and it brought the feather icing back to mind. I think it looks quite good as an updated, more design-focused look.

* So, when something is a dogs’ breakfast, it is a dog’s breakfast or a dogs’ breakfast? Does that distinction depend on just how bad it really is – for something truly awful, it reaches 101 Dalmatians proportions... And does it matter what sort of dog it is? There could be a whole world of difference between a pug’s breakfast and a Newfoundland’s breakfast...
