Try Rice Krispies iced smooth in royal icing then fondant covered, you can make different shapes and jagged edges.

i made one once and I bought a styrofoam ball, cut it in half and mold it there. I was thinking about leaving the ball for stability but I didn;t need it after all since I rolled the fondant thick. So it was hollow and I put a penguin sticking out of the igloo door.

If you have a ball pan you can use that, or carve a cake into the shape of an igloo. If you use a crusting buttercream, then you can use a toothpick or knife to cut "blocks" into the icing.

I made an iceberg/penguin cake using the wilton wonder mold pan. Then I covered the cake in fondant and brushed white and blue luster dust on it to make it sparkle and have shading. It is in my photos on the first page. HTH

Thanks for the answers! I ended up using the mini wilton pan and adding some extra cake to make it look like a slope
