Penguins. Cupcakes. Woodland Park Zoo. Saturday.

The zoo is opening a new penguin exhibit this weekend, complete with black and white cupcakes! Yup, a crew of Humboldt Penguins will now call the Woodland Park Zoo home, and we're welcoming them with 2,000 cupcakes...that look like them...sort of. So head on out to the Woodland Park Zoo this Saturday to get a firsthand look at these dapper little birds. The ribbon cutting ceremony is at 10 a.m. with penguin fun times goin' on all day long...and cupcakes for as long as they last.

Humboldt penguins are an endangered species native to the coasts of Peru. Yes, Peruvian penguins. Whodathunkit? Learn all about 'em this Saturday, and enjoy yourself a delicious little cupcake while you're there.

And if you're wondering what it looks like when the bosslady from our bakery gets too close to a penguin in Antarctica, here it is. He looks nervous. He probably should be.

UPDATE - Just to be clear - the cupcakes will be at the zoo. All you gotta do is show up, and they're free!


  1. Brilliant! I can't wait to come over and get some. Maybe we'll pick them up on the way over to the zoo with the kids and have them as part of a picnic. YUM!

  2. @cschiller Sounds like a fine way to spend a Saturday to me!

  3. Just to be clear, because it wasn't the first time around - the cupcakes will be at the zoo, and they're FREE!
