Happy 50th Birthday Richard

First off, let me tell you how much I loved making these little penguin guys for this cake. They are so sweet, if a little chubby. The lovely recipient of this cake is being taken to the Antarctic as their birthday present (how cool is that?!) so that was the theme! Since making this cake I’ve learnt that there are apparently no igloos in the Antarctic (doh!). Although, I’m almost certain Pingu lived in an igloo? I moulded the igloo using flower paste and made the penguins out of fondant. For the pole I used a red paper straw that was surprisingly sturdy so held in the cake well. The cake itself was a vanilla sponge with coconut buttercream and raspberry jam – A flavour combination I’m loving at the moment! I hope Richard had a special birthday and has the most incredible adventure to the Antarctic! x
