Ducks and Bubbles

Baby Shower, Birthday, or Water Party I think these ducks fit in just about anywhere.

Don’t they look like they’re swimming?  I used blue print tissue paper to cover my stand.

Colors don’t always have to be realistic to look cute.  Be creative and have fun.  I made small balls out of fondant for the heads and ovals for the bodies.  I squished the ovals on the sides a little to look closer to a body.

The bottoms flattened on their own after sitting on parchment paper while waiting to be placed on the cupcake.

For the wings I rolled the fondant flat and used a leaf cookie cutter.  For the beaks I cut out squares then cut them in half from one corner to the other and sandwiched them together.   When you use MMF you can “glue” the peaces on with water.

I simply drew the eyes on with a food color marker.

I used mini cupcakes with white buttercream for the bubbles.  So cute and tastey.
