My mother is a big fan of penguins, she was obviously most enthusiastic about these penguin cupcakes. Something that I can understand very well. Are they just the cutest things to literally eat?
The basis for a penguin cupcake is easy to make. After making them, you can design it as crazy as you want. The ones I made, I gave a pair a sweet bow. Are they even more fun? Don’t worry about the decoration of the penguins! At Baked Comfort Food you will find more cupcake recipes. Check out the one I use for the Penguin Cupcake.
Supplies for Penguin Cupcake Design:
- Cupcakes (use this recipe for example )
- Fondant: white, black, light blue, orange and red
- Cutouts: round and heart
- Ball tool
- Edible glue
Line the cupcakes with a white base. On Handige Baktips you will find fine tips to do this as tight as possible, so make your cupcakes the most beautiful.
Put a black circle in the same size as you did for the white fondant. With a heart-shaped cutter you can insert a heart from the black circle as shown in the picture. Place the black fondant on the cupcake.
With a ball tool you make two dents for the eyes. You make the eyes of small balls of blue, black and white fondant. Look here for a clear and complete how to.
Make orange fondant a small beak. Form a ball into a triangle and press it a little flatter. Stick the beak onto the cupcake. Finish the beak by pressing the sides a little flatter with a knife. Now it seems as if the beak is a bit open. Make two ‘nostrils’ with a stick.
Do you want to give the penguins a nice bow? You can easily make this from fondant yourself. Form two balls of equal size into cones and make a notch from the narrow side with a knife. Place them against each other and press a smaller ball of fondant. Attach the bow to the cupcakes.
I gave the females a red bow on their heads. You could also give the males a nice bow tie, that makes it complete
