This Penguin cake idea was submitted by Julie M. (Rochester, NY, USA)
My friend's son was very interested in penguins, so that's where this cake came from! I did it for his birthday. It was a sculpted cake made out of several round layers stacked together and shaped to look like a penguin. I used a cupcake for the head. I covered the cake in black fondant and used white to make the belly and eyes. The orange beak and feet are egg shaped cakes iced in buttercream. It's stacked on top of a single layer round for added servings and that is decorated with rainbow confetti and the birthday inscription!
