I've seen some really cute baby shower cakes online, decorated with bubble-shaped fondant and a real rubber duckie. I thought it would be fun to try a similar design on a cupcake.
First, I made tiny ducks out of fondant.
I used sugar pearls (big sprinkles) around the edges and a few on top for the bubbles.
My three-year-old got to decorate her own. She was so proud!
Look at that perfect line of little pearls she placed one at a time, all by herself!
