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!

  1. These are so SO cute! I love the picure of Miss H. holding the cupcake, she is adorable.

  2. Thanks, Melanni! She had so much fun putting those little sugar pearls on and was so careful!
