I about lost my mind in the few minutes it took to bake this, sure that something would go horribly wrong and it would explode or something. It's out of the oven and cooling now and my heartrate has dropped back down to normal. Just need to gild it, jewel it, and add feathers.
Lots of things I'd do differently, not least of which are a) not do a human figure and therefore a human face and b) make the whole thing quite a bit smaller. It rivals the turned table leg that is the base of my peacock fan for size. I'm sort of thinking I may need to get a few really big ostrich plumes to go with what I already have, but we'll see.
