Perry the Penguin Cake © 1959
Perry's the name of this Cut-Up Cake.
Of course, he's dressed with Angel Flake.
First a coconut tummy to make him fat,
Then some gumdrops and that's that!
1. Bake and cool a 13x9x2-inch cake. From 2 opposit corners, measure 5 1/2 inches along short sides and 9 1/2 inches along long sides of cake. Cut through points on a curve as shown.
2. Cut off 2 1/2-inch triangles from corners for feet. From one corner of remaining cake, measure 3 inches along both sides. Cut across on a curve through points to make head. Place pieces as shown.
3. Spread a fluffy white frosting over cake. Top wings, feet and part of head with Chocolate Glaze*. Swirl snowy Baker's Angel Flake Coconut over chest and head. Use a silver dragée for eye, gumdrops for buttons and bill, licorice for cane.
*What is "Chocolate Glaze," and how do I make it?
