Creature Comforts...On Ice!

Amanda, one of my fave customers (she consistently has the best ideas for cakes) outdid herself once again.  For her mother's birthday, she wanted a "Creature Comforts on ice" cake!  Now, I don't know if I've talked about this here before but I loooove Creature Comforts.  Before Wallace and Gromit, Nick Park made Creature Comforts, a series of claymation shorts that involve animals in a zoo describing their experiences there.  It was a big part of my childhood (they reran it on Nickelodeon all the time) and when Amanda asked me to make combine the little guys from CC with a winter wonderland theme, I was more than happy to!

Above you can see: the candy lake I made for the poor little penguin to wipe out on, a little tree for a bird to hide behind while he throws his snowballs, a fun sheep making snow angels, another penguin blowing out the candle on his birthday cake and a bear dressed up as a snowman!

Wow! The ice on that one is amazing. How did you get it so sparkly?
