Description

These adorable penguins are so fun to make. Grab some Swiss cake rolls, Tootsie Rolls, sugared orange slices and some white and black fondant. Step-by-step photos are available if you click the link to my blog.

Ingredients

  • 1  Sugared Orange Slice
  • 1  Swiss Cake Roll
  • 1  Large Ball Of White Fondant (about 1-inch Diameter Size)
  • 2  Small Balls Of Black Fondant (about 1/8-inch Diameter Each)
  • 2  Small Balls Of White Fondant (about 1/4-inch Diameter Each)
  • 1  Tootsie Roll
  • ¼ cups Granulated Sugar

Preparation

For the feet:
Cut the sugared orange slice into thirds, width-wise. Remove the center section and reserve it. Press together the two outer sections and squish to flatten them together; set aside.

For the belly:
Place the Swiss cake roll, flat side down, on your work surface. Place the 1-inch diameter ball of white fondant in the palm of your hand and flatten it into an oval shape using the thumb of your other hand; place it on the lower half of the penguin body (it should stick all by itself).

For the eyes:
Place the 1/8-inch diameter balls of black fondant on top of the 1/4-inch balls of white fondant. Gently press down to squish them together; place them on the penguin body in the place where eyes should go, above the belly.

For the beak:
Cut a small triangular beak out of the reserved center section of sugared orange slice; place it under the eyes.

For the wings:
Unwrap then cut the Tootsie Roll in half. Knead each half into an oblong shape and flatten; press it onto the sides of the penguin body, just below eye level.

To serve:
Place penguin feet on a bed of granulated sugar and top with the penguin body.

Note: Keep a moist towel and dry towel handy when you make these. Things can get a little sticky after a while.
