Penguin Cake

This weekend I got to do this cute chocolate cake for our sons' buddy Tristan, who's favorite animal is penguins. I love making surprise cakes and seeing those happy smiles!

This cake was all chocolate, which is Tristan's favorite. I dressed it with fondant and piped a fuzzy fur with buttercream that I had colored. I also made a glittery snow base for the cake using fondant and clear sprinkles.

Wilton has come out with a new set of colors to color fondant and buttercream with, called Color Right Performance Color System. It includes eight ultra-concentrated colors that can be mixed into any hue you want, and you only need to use a tiny amount. This was my first time using it, and I love it! I can't wait to try and blend my own colors, especially those hard to find pretty pastels.

If you're looking for a great chocolate cake recipe, check out this recipe I posted a while back!


  1. Sån söt pingvin! Det är min pojkes favoritdjur också! Hur många kakbottnar använde du för att få till höjden? Jattefin!

    1. Tack! Jag använder 6 bottnar á 6 inch, varav den översta är en skålform!

    2. Hello Eve, what a lovely Cake - so cute and realistic!
      I am planning on making this for my nephews 3rd Birthday.
      Could you please tell me, how you attached the little wings and which size cake pan did you use?
