Now, for the fondant penguin, I got my inspiration when I saw this picture of a penguin on clker.com. Pretty cute… eh? Smile with tongue out

Here are my steps:

Step 1:
Roll out black fondant into an egg shape. I used my homemade marshmallow fondant.
This will be your penguin’s body and head.

Roll out a small ball of white fondant and flatten it into an oval shape.
