Baby Shower Cake

At Pamela's Sweet Sixteen party, one of the guests asked me if I would make a cake for a baby shower she was giving.  She gave me free reign to do what I wanted, just wanted the rubber duck theme and for a boy who is going to be called "Buck".  This is the cake she picked up this morning for the shower.  I was rather pleased with the way it turned out.  I had searched for pictures of duck cakes and found several similar to this and thought it was "just too cute". 
It's a french vanillia cake, iced in butter cream frosting with pirouette cookies for the bucket.  The towel, soap, soap bubbles and flowers are fondant.  The duck, of course, is rubber and the only thing not edible.  They seemed pleased when they picked it up.
 I love doing cakes that are out of the ordinary.
I have two more baby shower cakes to make, one next week and one the week after.  They are both for baby showers for my daughter-in-law, Misty, and my soon to be here-grandson, Micah Adam.

This is great! I can't wait to see what you do for next week! Maybe you need to think about a graduation cake. Something that looks like a graduation cap...say in Oliver Springs purple with a yellow tassle. Just a thought. Let me know what you think. I have until may. ;)
