Cakes in 2012 – Antarctic theme

My mother in law is a big kid. I don’t think she’ll ever really grow up. And that’s what we all love about her! She loves sailing, and penguins and whales. And has been to Antarctica twice (how lucky is she!). So I decided to combine all of those things in a cake for her birthday last year. And I got to muck around with fondant again, yay!

I covered the cake in white fondant to look like an iceberg. Then wrapped some blue pieces around the base as water (maybe squint a little when you look at the photo!). M-I-L has three kids, so I made three funny looking penguins. And of course a whale squirting out some water to top it all off!
