anyone have any ideas, tips, instructions or photos of a cartoon-like Penguin cake? I;d say about 20 servings...it's for my upcoming birthday and I'm not sure yet how I'm going to do it! I've found one picture so far, just wondering if there were any other ideas! Thanks!!! icon_eek.gif

When we did ours, it was hard to do the black on the face. If you have a friend to help, it makes it easier to have another set of hands so the fondant doesn't stretch. Dry the flippers with something under them so they flip up, it added a cute touch.

Good luck! Ours is in our photos, let me know if I can be any further help!

There is a pull apart "cupcake" silicone pan that could give you some idea.

When I think of "cartoon penguin" I automatically think of the Linux penguin, Tux!

Check out Disney's website www.clubpenguin.com. Kids love it and they are very cartoon like penguins.

Here is my penguin cake, SO EASY TO DO!!! Just a huge mound of cake covered in fondant sprinkled with the cake sparkles.

There is another view in my photos, a side shot.

I have another HUGE penguin cake that fed 60-80 kids in my photos if you want to take a peek at it.

I would try the 3d Teddy Bear Pan. I sculpted the attached pic of Cody a while back, but now that I have done Cookie Monster, Elmo and Abby, I would do a peguin this way too.
