My first child turns 7 today! Ahhh! My baby girl!! *sigh* She informed me that she wanted a Pingu cake a couple of weeks ago, so we looked around for ideas. First we made fondant to use for Pingu, the fish and the icebergs.
Here is the recipe:
4 cups mini marshmallows
4 cups powdered sugar
Put marshmallows into a bowl and sprinkle water over top.
Melt and stir marshmallows in the microwave in 10 second intervals (until smooth and melted)
Use a greased spatula to gradually mix in the sugar.
Once you have a ‘dough’ transfer it to a greased surface and roll out with a greased rolling pin. (Tip: I found this easier after refrigerating) Use food coloring to create different colors (we had to mix all the colors for black and it took quite a bit). Once you have made your fondant figures you can refrigerate until you have your cake ready.
It’s done. It was lots of fun to make the Pingu with my daughter (we made Pingu & the fondant a few days ago and I made/decorated the cake today while she is at school). I think she will love it!

When the food’s on the table, they’re down the street”
Wishing you a happy new year!
