Duck Cupcakes

Following on the success of the penguin cupcakes, myself and 2 fellow bakers - Caroline and Dave decided to attempt making the duck cupcakes from the What's New Cupcake book. These were slightly easier to make compared to the penguin ones and turned out fairly well.  There was some creative license involved of course :)

Spread frosting on top of cupcake. Attach mini donut for the head and a marshmallow cut diagonally for the tail. Place in the freezer for at least 20 minutes. 

 Dip the cakes in orange coloured frosting. We used Betty Crocker's Vanilla frosting - place in the microwave for 15-20 seconds until runny.  

Add the beak - a piece of fruitella shaped like a beak. 
Pipe on the 'eyes' and voila!

  1. How gorgeous! They are such a cute bunch.

  2. Love that last photo - too cute!

  3. Love, love, LOVE these! I'm torn between Nerd duck and Jordan duck. Very clever to get such humour into the little duckies.

  4. Gorgeous and I love the way that the ducks all have their own faces and personalities. These would be a great hit at a childrens birthday party but I'm sure adults wouldn't say no either!

  5. Yay, I'm glad everyone likes them! I had such fun making them with you, we'll have to do it again some time soon - maybe the pandas?!
