So I'll give you the quick version of these super cute little ducky cupcakes. Recently my Utah cousins were up and I wanted to play in the kitchen (like always).
The cousin, the fiance, and I baked and decorated to our hearts desire. This decor idea belongs to What's New, Cupcake?
Start with a basic vanilla cupcake, lightly frosted with vanilla frosting. Cut a large marshmallow in half diagonally, and place on the cupcake. Stick on a donut hole for the head. Secure with extra frosting. Freeze ~10 minutes. Melt about 1.5 containers of vanilla frosting and tint rubber ducky yellow. Dip duck-cakes up to the wrapper, and make sure all the cake is covered. Let the extra frosting run off.
Roll out and shape Starburst for the beak (think oval folded in half) and using extra solid frosting to glue on mini M&M's or mini chocolate chips for eyes.
Perfect for Ducky loving birthday kids, or vegetarians I suppose :D
