We didn't have a theme or anything to design the cake after so I had the ability to choose anything I want. This can be a blessing and a curse. Too many designs I want to make! Since she was born in a blizzard I decided to do something that had to do with snow or the cold. And since she is adorable she needed something cute on top. But his is what I came up with.
Everything on it is edible except the two balloon strings which are wires. On the sides are mountains covered in snow. The snowflakes are plunger cutters and the rest (penguin, mountains, and balloon are all hand made.
It was so cute to watch my sweet niece eat her cake. She picked off the penguin and ate it (the wires had already been removed before it was put in front of her). Then daintily picked off more fondant pieces. Her mom had to cut the cake before she dug in.
Glad to be back making cakes!
