I took this cake to my family's Christmas celebration. Everyone loved the little royal icing penguins. ;)

  • 2 boxes of your favorite cake mix
  • 1 batch of royal icing, tinted black, red, orange, and reserve some white
  • homemade buttercream
  • candy clay
  • piping gel
  • fondant
  1. Bake two oval cakes, cool, tort, stack, and ice light blue on the sides, white on the top, and use a tip 12 to create mounds of snow and ice around the edges of the cake

  2. Bake half of the wilton ball pan for the igloo. Cover it in white fondant with a small area of black for the door, mark the ice blocks with a ruler or spatula

  3. Carve out the water slide by cutting into the oval cakes at an angle and working from the top to the bottom. Ice this area with piping gel tinted blue.

  4. Make trees from candy clay tinted green. (candy clay recipe can be found at the wilton website or on the back of bags of candy wafers). To make the trees, just mold the candy clay into cone shapes of various sizes and then randomly snip 'branches' into the cones with scissors.

  5. Your royal icing penguins will need to be made days ahead of time to allow enough time to dry. Follow the instructions on the wilton website for making buttercream penguins, only use royal icing instead and use a tip 10 to make a santa hat and trim the hat with the smallest star tip you have.

  6. Place the penguins around the cake and sprinkle with confectioner sugar to get the affect of snow in the trees and on and around the penguins and igloo.
