press the ball down well to make sure there are no air pockets so the igloo will be smooth, then wrap it in the plastic wrap

Step 4: Cheese Ball 3

take the cheese ball out of the bowl and turn it over then smooth the rounded side with your hand

Step 5: Penguins

make a vertical slit in one of the Jumbo olives , this will be the body , which you will stuff with cream cheese. (You’ll use 1/3 of the block to stuff penguins. Save the rest for “icing” the igloo.)

    Before anyone complains... There is ice in Antarctica, so a penguin could make an igloo if he/she wanted to. And it's just food - if a marshmallow polar bear wandered in that would be cool (pun intended).
