  • 2 White Cake Mixes
  • 2 containers of lemon frosting
  • 3 containers of white frosting
  • 1 Container of blue glitter Sugar
  • Mini Marshmallows / Powdered Sugar for home made fondant
  • 1 Sunshine Yellow Food coloring
  • 1 Blue Food coloring
  • 1 turquoise food coloring
  • 1 Orange food coloring
  1. Make 1 9X11 inch cake
    Make 1 3 D Duck Cake you must use the 3 D duck cake pan for this to work.

    Let the cakes cool. Best would be to cool over night.

    You will want to do your water 1st. You will take 1/2 of a container of White frosting and mix your Wilton blue food coloring. I use the gels since this will not dilute your icing and make it runny. You will place blue frosting in the center of the cake and almost to the edges until 1/2 inch

  2. Then you will want to do your White for the Bath tub. You do this with just a medium star tip going around the whole bath tub on the sides. Taking it towards the top just a bit like 1 to 2 layers to make the edges of the bath tub, just verily covering the edges of the Blue from the Water.
    When you have this all completed then you will take your Sugar Ducks and place them around the edges toward the bottom of the cake 2-3 on each side.

  3. Place the duck on the top You will want to frost the beak first. Then you can start frosting the duck with a medium star tip around. After you get the duck done, you will want to make your home made fondant. To do this you take about 12 marshmallows and melt them in the microwave for about 10 seconds until soft. Mix powdered sugar in it to make it thick like play do. You can add dye into it to make the colored eyes. But leave some to make other.

  4. For the finishing Touch you can sprinkle blue sugar crystals over the water to give it a better effect.
