Last Christmas, Santa brought me an amazing book called Hello Cupcake! The book is filled with amazing creations, new techniques and endless ideas. I've been waiting for months for the chance to try one of these creations, so I was uber excited when Maggie said she needed some penguins. It was a little trickier then it appeared, and the super hot and humid weather did not help, but look how cute they are!! I made a couple of changes from the book's directions, like the Belgian chocolate wafers for flippers (instead of chocolate cookies) and the white chocolate disk for the tummy (instead of a slice of marshmallow). Almost too cute too eat... almost.
I baked my first cookie at the age of 5, and have been in love ever since. The smiles on people's faces when they taste my creations is what keeps my passion alive!
