Rated 5 out of 5 by from we made this for our daughter's birthday last december. the hardest part was frosting the cake :). it truly was super easy we skipped the penguins and used polly pocket type dolls to make figure skaters and blue jello to make the ice(jiggler recipe). was a hit everyone loved it. covered in sugar sprinkles it almost looked like real snow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My only problem was that I waited until the last minute to assemble the penguins, my company had arrived and I was working frantically.....we all went to work together on them and it was so much fun......usually I am so together but this worked out great and I would recommend putting the little favors together......together!!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made this for a New Year's Eve party. It turned out really cute! I wish I had made the pesto a day in advance so it was a bit more set but it was fine. I made blue Jello jugulars for the ice also and that really made a big impression. Everyone loved it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've made this for several yrs. Everyone loves it. You'll be proud of your self too. It's a little something different than most cheese spreads. You could actually adapt your own recipe to this despgn.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this for a Christmas party at work. It was fun to make and a big hit with my co-workers. As a time saver, I cheated a little by picking up plastic penguins from the toy department at a store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I used this design with my own cheese ball recipe. It turned out really cute. My only problem was finding colossal black olives in my area so I used the biggest ones I could find.
