Hi my CC friends!

I have a cake coming up and the main part will be a girly rubber ducky. It will be yellow (of course) and have a red scarf.

I would like to place it on a large round cake and that's where I need your ideas.

How should I decorate the bottom circular layer? It's for a one year old girl so I would like to make it cute and girly....what comes to your mind??

Thanks in advance everyone!

I have seen many cakes where the duck sits in a barrel filled with bubbles or water. Cover the outside of the bottom cake with brown variegated fondant twisted to look like wood. Search some rubby ducky pictures in the gallery and you will see what I mean.

Good Luck! aztomcat

What about something simple like little polka dots or curliques? I love stuff like that for little kids icon_smile.gif

After the crumb coat and before you put the fondant on you could make a "snake" out of fondant then put it around the edge of the cake so when you cover it with fondant it looks like a bath tub and that is the rim. You could fill the tub with a bunch of bubbles.(made out of white or light blue fondant rolled into little balls, maybe you could add sparkles?)
