I asked my daughter what kind of cake she wanted for her birthday. She told me she wanted a “Duck Cake”. So this is what I came up with.
I started with store bought cake mix and white icing. I tinted the icing with food coloring. First I put the blue icing in the corner area for the pond. Then I covered the rest of the cake with green icing. I piped along the border of the blue and green to make shrubs and hide the color change area. I also put those blue crystal sprinkles in the “pond” to make it pretty.
I used the pipe again for grass around the cake and put some sugar flowers on top. I put a rubber duck on top for the finishing touch. My daughter loved it and my family was very impressed!
I made this Duck pond cake as a classic Victoria sponge with a golden syrup twist. I made three separate layers, stacking two then shaping the third for the ledge.
I dyed the buttercream grass color and piped it over the entire cake, missing the lake which was made of fondant icing. I shaped the ducks from ready roll and made the grassy reeds from jelly sweets. The rocks are chocolate fudge chucks placed and I finished off the pond detail with Lilly pads.
I love making cakes which are bright colors so this was up my street. I added small flowers over the cakes and finished off with a butterfly just about to fly away.
The cake went down well and so did they taste, it was thoroughly enjoyed all round and served a lot of people!
I downloaded a duck from my clip art, enlarged it and made a paper cut out. My grandson has a Magpie duck and from a photo of it, I tried to make my Duck Cake Idea look like it. I baked a 9 X 13 cake, and after it had cooled, I placed the paper cut-out on it. Then I cut the cake out, and made icing, with four colors: blue, black, white, and orange. I used a brown M&M for the eye. I cut the left over cake pieces in half so they weren't as high as the duck. I placed them around the duck and covered them with blue icing to resemble water.
My grandson enjoyed the cake and everyone thought it looked just like his duck Maggie!
This Homemade Ducks Baby Shower Cake was really simple. I used approx 3 boxes of store bought cake mix. This is a 3 layer cake, each layer being 9 inches. I made frosting according to the Wilton buttercream recipe. I frosted all surfaces and between layers, except for the top.
I then colored about a cup of icing with blue food coloring, and frosted the top. Spread icing as little as possible to give look of waves. I then stuck the pirouette cookies (approx 2 cans) to edges of the cake, and added the ducks, and Voila!
This is a cake I made for one of my best friend's baby shower. 12" round, 8" square, 6" round. I used drinking straws (actually made them fit inside each other for strength) to support the cake, 5 in the bottom round and 4 in the middle square.
It's a family vanilla cake recipe, filled with chocolate pudding, iced in vanilla buttercream, and covered in marshmallow fondant. My friend loved it, I received a lot of compliments. It was the first big event cake I'd ever done, and I was pretty pleased with the outcome.
I made this Duckie in Tub Birthday Cake for my daughter's first birthday. It was very easy to make. I made a two layer round cake and frosted it. I applied graham crackers around the cake to be the "tub".
I then dyed piping gel blue and frosted the top of the cake. For the bubbles, I simply used white buttercream frosting applied with the largest dot decorator tip. Finally, I added a rubber duckie to the center.
This is a great cake for birthdays or baby showers.
