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?

Philip-
Thanks! I'm glad you liked this cake. There are plenty more to come, so stay tuned! :)

Thanks for taking the time to comment!

Princess Wild Cow-
You know, I didn't even notice that the polls had so drastically changed since I posted this. At the time of this post, good ol' Perry was in the #1 spot. Now it looks like Ella the Elephant is, followed closely by the Butterfly cake. I'll just have to follow up with whatever is at #2 when it comes time to post again. :)

Shells-
Aw, I'm glad you like it! All the cakes are really cute, actually. My favorite cake (The boy Cut-Up Kid) only got one vote...mine. LOL! Oh well, you'll get to see it ...eventually.
