|Honestly, she loved it!|
For the template, I used a copy of her pajama shirt.
The penguin template I made was a tiny bit too big for the cake, but I made it fit...it was almost midnight and there was no way I was going to mess around re-sizing it!
Now I know it's not perfect, the buttercream isn't smooth - that's an art that I'm working on perfecting. I told Dave that I had done it that way on purpose to represent snow drifts...you know, penguins, snow, winter...no? He didn't buy it either.
Anyways, there was also a slight problem with her beak - it had to be removed and fixed, but overall, I'm happy with the penguin!
