Throughout the years, many of our readers have been inspired to create their very own rubber ducky cakes by looking through the pictures that I've shared on this page. In looking over these photos, you too may have experienced some inspiration on how you can combine the elements of rubber ducks, cakes, and icing to create your own spin of this popular birthday cake.

Regardless of what theme that you elect to integrate – a basic floating rubber duck, a duck in a tub, or even a duck that reflects some sort of job or hobby – the pictures that we have shared will assist you. If you are still in need of some help, I've put together the following instructions that will guide you for creating a successful rubber ducky cake:

Instructions For Creating A Bubbly Rubber Ducky Cake

Items Needed:

  • Two Boxes White Cake Mix
  • White Icing
  • Whipped Cream
  • Pastry Bag
  • Light Blue Fondant
  • Square Cake Pan
  • Multi-Colored Sprinkles
  • Two Toy Rubber Ducks – One Small, One Large
  • Cake Tray

Step 1: Start by making up the cake batter according to the directions on the box of the two white cake mixes.

Step 2: Fill a square cake pan with the batter and bake in accordance with the box instructions.

Step 3: Roll out the light blue fondant while the cake is baking and place it to the side. It will be placed on top of the iced cake and will act as a little pond area for the rubber duck toys.

Step 4: After the cake is done and has cooled, transfer it to a cake plate and cover it with white icing.

Step 5: Cover half the cake with light blue fondant to represent the water.

Step 6: Use the whipped cream to create large piles of “bubbles” around the blue fondant on the cake. Use the pastry bag to create small “bubbles” with white icing around the blue fondant. Create a couple of small white bubbles directly on the blue fondant.

Step 7: Place each of the rubber duck toys on the blue fondant.

Step 8: Around the bottom edges of the cake, add the multi-colored sprinkles to enhance the appearance of your rubber ducky cake.
