I made a lot of details for the cake which I will be sharing with you in the next few days.
EASY GUMPASTE DUCKY
- yellow gumpaste for the duck
- orange fondant or gumpaste for the beak
- white fondant or gumpaste for "bubbles"
- small rolling pin
- duck cookie cutter
- royal icing
- knife tool or tooth pick
- black edible writer
- small petal cutter (optional)
-To make the ducks roll out the yellow gumpaste and cut the ducks out with the cookie cutter, put them on top of parchment paper on a flat surface ( I used a cookie sheet) and let them dry for a few days.
-Roll the white gumpaste in your hands forming small "bubbles" and let them dry with the ducks.
The day that you are decorating the cake...
-Attach the duck to the cake with royal icing, then attach the bubbles.
-Roll out the orange gumpaste and using the cookie cutter cut the beak and attach to the duck with a dab of water.
-I wanted to add a few wings to the duck, the easier, the better!
-Roll out yellow gumpaste and using a small petal cutter cut the "wings" and make details with the knife tool or with a tooth pick.
-Attach to the duck with a dab of water.
There you have a simple and cute yellow ducky!
