Penguin Cake

I made this cake for a boy who loves penguins. It was my first scuplted cake.

I started with a few round layers stacked together, and carved away slowly with a serrated knife to find the right penguin shape. I also used little egg shaped cakes for the beak and feet. The penguin is covered in black and white fondant, and the wings are black fondant. He is sitting on top of a 10″ round single layer cake, decorated with the birthday inscription and multi colored confetti and polka dots. It is finished with a bottom dot border.

The birthday boy loved it!

I’d pay you good money if you lived near me. My penguin addicted daughter would be over the moon to have that for her cake but then again it’s so cute she’d probably try to save it from being eaten too so just as well.

Awesome job.
