My sister is Penguin OBSESSED! So when we celebrated her birthday everything had to be penguin… even her cake!

This is my first 3D cake–it was a major challenge!

Huge pieces, yummmy but dense

For the cake I basically used several different pound cake recipes (all delicious). I made 8 layers out of 8′ round cake pans.

I then stacked them on top of each other with a basic cream cheese frosting in between and stuck some chopsticks in it so that it would be stable (I had no dowels). Then I carved out the shape of a penguin which was kind of similar to a bowling pin.

I covered the cake with buttercream frosting (some coloured with Wilton’s icing gel black and some left white).

Then I used some Jet Puff marshmallow spread and corn starch to make a faux-fondant to create the beak and eyes!

She really enjoyed it!
