post #1 of 10 goes... I am wanting to make penguins out of fondant but am not sure how to accomplish this. I've not worked with fondant much so i'm defiantly a beginner with it. I've seen so many cute cakes with penguins on them. Can anyone help me?

Those penguins are not for a cake they are made out of olives and i don't think that would be appropriate for cake

I googled how to make penguins out of fondant and this is the only thing i found from

"For penguins, roll black ball for head, and white cylinder shape for body. Use a small leaf cookie cutter for the wings, and oval shapes for the feet. Orange triangle shape for the beak, and small flattened circles for eyes."

Hope this helps. Good Luck

Hi.. i am just in the process of making my daughters birthday cake... penguin theme. And i am definately a beginner. There are links that i looked at that i got from this website on step by step instructions on how to make them.
Although some say to use gumpaste as it sets harder.. i couldn't get my hands on any and have made them out of fondant. They're turning out ok actually.
The link is:

However.. i did black face and white body for the penguins

The other link i can't seem to find but its here on this website somewhere.

I also found on someone wrote:

"Each penguin starts as a black ball, gently rolled to shape. Eyes are a heart-shaped white cutout, with black straw-cut tiny pupils. Noses are little tiny dark orange cones. Belly is a white ellipse. Wings/flippers are two leaf-shaped side cutouts from a circle. Feet are also a heart-shaped cutout, in pale orange. Then hats, scarves and earmuffs are just pure fondant fun! I prepped everything first, then just used egg whites to glue the pieces together â line production rules! When deconstructed like this, anyone can make a little cute penguin!"

The book "Polymer Clay Characters" by Annie Lang has directions for making a penguin. I purchased the book at Michaels. If you want to give me your e-mail address I can scan the directions to you.
