I really like the shape of this cake. It's a little different from a regular round cake so it's a bit more interesting I think. The penguins and snowballs are made from mm fondant. If you click on the picture to enlarge it you can see all the funny little penguins. I have one on ski's, I used spaghetti for the ski poles, and one eating an ice cream cone with a cherry on top. I even put a little tiny cherry stem on it. The cake came out really cute, if I do say so myself!
