Third and final birthday cake in December

YES I made it. That was a lot of cakes for me for one month.
The last and final cake was for my wonderful friend who turned 40 this year. Last year I made her a dice cake. It was a bit crooked but I did make sure the numbers matched a real set of dice. It tasted good which is what really matters.

This year I remembered she has a great love of Penguins. Not that I could ever forget. ;). So I tried my hand at making a penguin, and lucky for me that cake pan I used for the dragon worked really well to make one. Well after I cut off a couple ears and arms. OH and making jet black butter cream is very hard to do. I ended up having to add cocoa powder to get the icing from gray to black.

He looks very angry(I never should have given him eyebrows) but he was well received. Although she was a little violent with the cutting.

All in all it was loved and devoured.

Now what will I make her next year?
