Following on from making Monkeys cake for his birthday (the badger cake can be seen here) I was really sad to cut up the top, and actually took off the badgers and kept them for a while. Afterwards I saw Ann Pickard on Create and Craft teaching people how to make sugarcraft models, and she suggested doing the main sugarcraft on a separate board to simply sit on top of the cake. So this is what I did! The ribbon around the top is to conceal the join, and I will be able to take off the penguins and keep them for our birthday party which is in a months time, but also to keep for as long as I have somewhere to put it!!
As I said before, I watched Ann Pickard on C&C, and these penguins are made to her instructions. I couldn't decide how to have them all on top, but eventually decided to sit some on little ice blocks, and to make a hole in the ice. Finally I thought it was missing something and made some little fish and a little fishing rod.
