This couple wanted a winter wedding and chose penguins as the cake topper because they said penguins mate for life. Bride and Groom penguins were molded from gumpaste and fondant. The groom designed and sketched the cake for me. 6" white, 10" marble, & 14" chocolate fudge, all iced in buttercream. Fondant blue ribbon, and various shades of snowflakes. After travelling several hundred miles, I had some trouble with assembly, so added the sprinkling of coarse sugar to cover and flaws.
