Bambino Penguino!!

So I got the opportunity to help out another friend with her daughter's birthday party. This time, I was in charge of the cake. YEAH! I love decorating cakes. Soooooo fun!

Many people ask how I make my cakes....well, I will give you some secrets. Not really...but here's what I do.
Step 1: I ALWAYS use parchment paper on the bottom of any cake pan I use.
Step 2: I ALWAYS flour my pans. Spray some PAM or use some Crisco and flour the edges. This one was not as
Step 3: I ALWAYS wait 10 minutes after pulling my cakes out of the oven before taking them out of the pans. You can also put a crumb coat on, which is a thin layer of icing then refrigerated so you don't get that dirty crumby mix in your nice frosting job. 
See how well it comes out?

Now, the party was deemed a Penguin party. So, without further ado, the penguin cake!! Inspiration came from this month's Family Fun magazine.

I know this is blurry, but it was hilarious. That's Little Miss reading the Ensign - our church magazine - on the toilet. (All Private areas safely out of the shot!)

  1. THANK YOU again! So much. Chloe loved the cake, (if you couldn't tell), and all the girls at the party thought it was the greatest thing ever. I enjoyed the purple and blue cake inside...very clever!

    And you need to post the bows you made also. Those were a big hit, too!
