Penguin Igloo Checkerboard Chiffon Cake

This is my humble attempt at a Checkerboard Chiffon Cake for my nephew (whose class just visited bird park). As a cute Penguin on Igloo was requested, the base design is an Igloo-inspired design, made by patterning Checkerboard ‘Ice cubes’ using Chiffon Cake. This is one difficult cake which I don’t think I will attempt again so soon =p. Briefly, the checkerboard design was made by using 8 homemade dividers in the chiffon pan (picture tutorial in Deco Chiffon Cakes, similar to 6-flavour Earth Tones cake), and filling in layers like my Rainbow Chiffon Cake (in Creative baking: Chiffon Cakes, then removing the dividers. Quite a stressful project as you can tell =p. The cake is also not my tallest chiffon cake due to its complexity, but thankfully the texture was not compromised.

The Penguin was made by joining two oval chiffon bowl cakes together. The snowflakes were cut from chiffon cake sheet cakes using snowflakes plunger, and glued on with melted marshmallows. Sorry for the short post! As my kids are not well at the moment. Everyone please take care!

With lots of love,
