Pingu Christening cake

This Pingu christening cake was made as a gift for our best friends little boy Magnus. The parents both love Pingu, so it was easy to decide what should be sitting on top of the cake. Both Pingu and the toys are made from rolled fondant mixed with Tylo powder (CMC).

I also made the Pingu cake topper on thin cardboard, so that they could keep the topper as a keepsake. Inside the cake was a moist chocolate cake and raspberry mousse (recipes on the way). I coated the cake with Italian Meringue Buttercream and covered it with rolled fondant in a pretty ice blue color. I used some cookie cutters to cut out his name and the christening date was embossed on the round circles.

The cake was a huge success!

Happy Caking!
