Make way for ducklings ...

Lots of 1st birthdays lately! This week I got a request for a duckie themed cake and cupcakes. I'm really, really happy with with way things turned out.

Chocolate cake with chocolate filling, buttercream frosting, and fondant decorations (bow, dots, bubbles), and a real rubber duckie:

Warning: the following content is extremely cute!

I haven't done cupcakes for a while - but after these cute little things, I think I'll be making them more often! I'm really happy with how they came out, particularly the fondant ducks. They weren't even that hard to make! The first time I looked at them all together, I think I giggled almost non stop for about 10 minutes...they're just that hilariously cute.

These are so beautiful. I think I'd be sad if I ate one.

the ducklings REALLY look like something from a Wallace & Grommit movie. ;-)
