Easy gumpaste Duck

A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to make a Duck themed Baby Shower cake for my cousin who was hosting a Baby Shower for her sister in law.
I made a lot of details for the cake which I will be sharing with you in the next few days.


Supplies needed:

  • 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
  • water
  • 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!
