Homemade  Rubber Duckie Cake

Homemade Rubber Duckie Cake

It was our grandson's first birthday and the only word he knows is duck. He recognizes ducks in pictures and then he gets so excited, he flaps his hands.

We started the cake with our banana cake recipe. We made 2 cakes - 12x8. I made a template of a duck out of cardboard and laid the cake out on a sheet of paper to imagine how it would work. We made both cakes on Saturday, as well as the icing. We iced the first cake in blue icing, to represent the sea. Then we cut out the duck from the second cake and iced it yellow. We made the beak orange and used a Wilton brown colour pencil to make the duck lines. We used a candy eye. We also used a duck candle to decorate and candy letters to write his name. He said duck when he saw the cake and shoved his piece of cake in his mouth since this was his first sweet.

We got our ideas from this website and were very proud of our accomplishment.

Coolest Rubber Duck Cake

by Tiffany Dailey

I used the Wilton Rubber Duck cake pan which recommends using pound cake. I used a Better Crocker pound cake mix for the duck. So the cake was plenty firm and therefore, easy to decorate.

This was my first cake decorating experience so it isn't perfect. The bottom layer is a regular 13 x 9 chocolate cake mix. I decorated it blue and made swirlies in it to look like water. This was actually nice because I am not good at getting a smooth frosting look so I didn't have to stress over that. I decorated it and then set the duck on top and decorated it on top.

For the eye, I took a large chocolate chip and cut off the pointy end, placing it bottom side out. This saved me from having to have a tad bit of black frosting and was a tasty extra!

I had a lot of fun making the cake. People are very impressed with 3D cakes even when you use a pan to make it!

I used the Wilton 3d duck pan to bake this cake and also used the cake release by Wilton, which was a life saver. I used all Wilton colours and decorating tips 16 & 21.The instruction enclosed with the pan were extremely helpful.
I used the star technique for most of the cake, but ended up using a spatula on the sides of the cake and fluffed it up, to make the wings on the side of the duck. As my hands gave in decorating one side of the cake . I used buttercream from a home made recipe to decorate the cake, but feel whipped cream or double cream would have done the same job and quicker as it is easier to pipe cream, beacuse it is softher than buttercream.
When my son Zakaria saw the cake he said "duck" straight away as that was his first word. It was really worth all the effort I had put in to this party, just seeing Zakaria's reaction.

Homemade Rubber Duckie Cake

This is a Rubber Duckie Cake I made for a friend. Its Ernie and his Rubber Duckie taking a tubby. The tub is the cake carved and covered in fondant with fondant accents and Ernie and rubber duckie are also made from fondant and sugar paste.

The cake is on a board with wood pegs under made to look like the bottom of the tub. I covered the bottom board with fondant and painted it so it looked like a wood floor.

I loved making this cake Ernie is one of my favorites.

I just wanted to say how impressed I was with your cake. I am making a fancy bday cake for the first time (I'm not even attempting fondant!) But I have been looking at quite a few duckie cakes/ bubble cakes, and your work is superior!

If you're even coming to this website anymore, do you have any ideas on making a bubble cake? I mean "Lawerence Welk Bubbles!" My two year old is a bubble fanatic.... (well Barney is her number one, but the inlaws already bought the Barney cake)

But, bubbles are her second, and since she is two, I figured her favorite part of her bday would be tearing into/eating the cake! (the other reason I don't want to use fondant, I want her to actually eat it, and I hear fondant doesn't taste good)

Even if you don't respond back, at least you know how much I enjoyed your work, I even wish you had more pics of it! Especially how you painted the wood floor, i could get some tips on shading the bubbles??)
