Another duck cake
Tomorrow Ashton and I will get to go to a birthday party for a friends 2 year old little girl. She asked me to make the cake since she was going to do a rubber ducky theme and have a wading pool party. I am so pleased with how this cake turned out. Finally my frosting wasn't too stiff so the edges didn't fall off this time. I used fondant for the beak and chocolate wafers for the eyes and for the circles along the outside. I made the balloons out of card stock and used bamboo skewers to hold them up and poke into the cake. The party hat was made with scrapbook paper. I think this is my best cake yet and I think my technique is getting better. It has been a lot of fun decorating cakes, now I need to find tried and true cake recipes that I know aren't going to spill over in the oven.
