After the success of sheep cupcakes I was keen to try another animal.
Penguins were suggested to me, and since it uses pretty much the same colours, I thought I’d give it a try.
I first started with the body and the head, and unfortunately it looked rather human-body-part.
It did take quite a long time to make it, as I had to wait until they harden before I could add more features, otherwise the penguin would collapse.
Next batch I will make the buttercream harder, and make the penguin shorter in general, with the white body patch larger.
Here’s the result!
By the way, I was pretty excited about the flavour, as it’s a coconut cupcake! It’s actually just my vanilla cupcake recipe with some tweaking, and it turned out even better than the vanilla cupcake. The coconut shreds added gave the cupcake a crispy crunchy bite, I was really excited!
