Blast from the Past: Gum Paste Penguin Family Birthday Cake

Cutest cake ever! Maybe not, but probably the cutest cake I have ever made.  This cake was for my best friend's birthday, and it was my first attempt at hand modeling figures.

My little penguin family turned out better than expected.

The details:
  • The igloo is a cake baked in the Wilton sports ball pan.
  • All figures and details are are made of fondant. 
  • The water is piping gel colored with Americolor gel paste color. 
  • To make the penguins, I used this tutorial I found at Cake Central.
