Bryn turned one on Friday and I wanted to give her a special rubber duckie cake (she loves her duckies). I like to make my kids' birthday cakes. My mom always made mine and hers always tasted the best. I have never used fondant before and I thought I would give it a shot. I even made my own fondant and buttercream frosting. The fondant was really messy but easy to make. It was however a bit difficult to work with, especially if there is an ounce of humidity in the air! All in all I think it went pretty well. Here is the finished product:
The little cupcake was Bryn's to eat, errr smash!
I used pearl dust for the bubbles. They looked bubbly!
I did catch flack for not making my own ducks. I had already bought the ducks. This way she has a little keepsake from her cake. Hey this isn't Ace of Cakes ya know!
