I only had two weeks notice on this cake but hey, we do what we can to accommodate. This was officially the biggest cake I've ever done, and frankly the most elegant. This is not normally something I do but I would do it again in a heartbeat. It was way more fun and challenging than I expected. If you look closely there are TONS of those little silver "BBs" around the bottom of each tier. I also did all the piping then went back after it was dried and painted it all silver. This cake was a lot of work but it was amazing. It was delish on the inside too. The bottom tier (weighing in at almost 30 lbs all by itself) was chocolate, white, chocolate, white with chocolate mousse filling. The next 2 layers were chocolate with peanut butter mousse with chocolate chunks... Holy Cow! We were making little cake top sandwiches with the leftovers on this one too. It was GOOD! Then the top tier was white cake with chocolate ganache. At first I was a little nervous about putting penguins on such an elegant cake but I thought it was really cute!
