Penguin First Birthday Cake
I’m having a hard time letting this one go! I love penguins, & was so happy to get to do a penguin cake! I used McGreevy Cakes’ fabulous tutorial to help me model the penguin topper. I am NOT naturally good at sculpting & modeling, so I was really proud of how well she turned out!
Each little penguin has a different ‘outfit’ on. The theme of the cake matches the party invitations. The matching smash cake is super simple, with piped rosettes of white chocolate buttercream.
The cake is vanilla with white chocolate buttercream filling & milk chocolate ganache. All edible. The topper is modeling chocolate with fondant decor. The snowflakes are royal icing.
