A duck pond cake full of duckies, frogs, rocks, grass, & flowers! This cake makes a cute baby shower cake!

  • 2 boxes of cake mix (approx. 6 C. of batter)
  • 6 C. of Buttercream icing
  • Blue, green paste food coloring
  • 4 containers of pirouette (or equivalent wafer) cookies
  • "rock" colored jelly beans
  • rubber duckie cake picks
  • green frog cake picks
  • Tips 233 (grass), 14 (flowers), 70 (leaves), 3 (white caps & writing)
  1. Prepare cake mix per box directions. Fill a 9X13 sheet cake pan 3/4 full with batter. Cake is done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in pan 10-15 minutes. Level cake with a serrated knife or leveler, etc. Transfer cake from pan to a cooling rack. Cool completely. Transfer cake to cake board covered with board paper or aluminum foil.

  2. With a spatula, ice the pond area with blue icing. Ice the sides and rest of the top of the cake green (smoothness is not a factor with this cake). Pipe in grass around the pond and some grass mounds randomly around the cake. Add jelly bean rocks and a few frogs too! Arrange duckies in the water and use a small amount of white icing to pipe in white caps on the water.

  3. Break wafer cookies in half, swipe a small amount of icing along back sides and press them into the side of the cake. Add a grass border around the bottom of the cookies. Pipe in little flowers in the grass mounds and around the outter border grass.
