I'm making a winter-themed cake for my neighbor's daughter and she wanted ice skating incorporated into it. I thought it would be cute to have a little frozen pond with penguins ice skating and have them write "happy birthday" with their skates on the ice. Any ideas on how to make this look realistic, kind of like it's etched in the ice?

Maybe poured sugar, melt some sugar with corn syrup, pour in shape you want and let it set for a bit. Easy and quick. HTL

What Lyndim said. Etch it with an Exacto knife once it's set, .
