Cool Homemade Penguin Pool Birthday Cake Design

This Penguin Birthday Cake Design was made for a teenage girl who loves penguins. All the penguins are made from fondant and hand painted. The penguin pond is made from melted down taffy and the cake was hallowed out at that spot. For ice I used clear rock candy.

It was a chocolate cake with raspberry filling. This was my first cake with a fruit filling and I learned you can’t just throw berries in a cake without actually making a filling. The cake was a delicious pile of mush under the penguin exterior!

The birthday girl still has the “love” penguins 2 years later.
