I used this recipe from to make these cute cupcakes for my Artic Fun cake. I just layered the cupcakes together and placed 3 Penguin cupcakes on a ice flow next to a blue icing tinted pool of water. I made cream cheese icing but you could use a canned icing. Instead of using dried apricots I just used yellow tic-tacs for the nose and legs. Too Cute! Quick and this made a great presentation.
