In honor of the Pittsburgh Penguins proceeding to the second round, I bought this penguin at a café. They hadn't made a sign for it yet, so I didn't know what kind of cake(?) it was, what it cost, or what its name was.

When I asked for a penguin, the lady looked completely baffled for a few second, but then she smiled and knew what I meant. I asked her what it was called, but she hadn't been told, so maybe they haven't named it yet?

It turned out not to be a cake, but a marshmallow. The fluff had turned a bit rubbery where it wasn't covered in chocolate and it was extremely sweet, so I probably won't get one again. Unless the Penguins win round 2, of course, then I'll have to.

I can just imagine the bafflement :D It looks like a slightly melty penguin, but it's a fun idea! Too bad it wasn't as tasty as it looks. And congrats to Pittsburgh, I guess? (It is Pittsburgh? Do people usually conflate team/city in NHL?)

While it's a little 'off-spec' for a penguin, I want to give a little cheer for the baker going on and making something just a bit out of training. May the Penguins keep going so all the artisans can perfect their penguins.

Hopefully next time you'll know which media it's sculpted in, and dine appropriately!

Congrats Pens!

And what a cute penguin ... maybe the first step towards your very own hockey superstition? ;)

I can now appreciate this post on a higher level than when it was posted.
