How awesome, I have to make one in a few weeks!!

Here is what I was planning to do.....mine is to be about 12" long and maybe 8 or 9" tall per the customer's request.

I don't have any oval pans (but if you do that would be a good start for the base of the duck) I'm using round pans, I'm going to start with a couple layers of 12" rounds and then maybe stick a 6" round near the tail end (so I can carve the tail coming up a little) and then I plan to use probably 5" rounds (2 or 3, won't know until I start doing it) for the head section.

I plan to cover in yellow fondant and then add the orange mouth/bill separately (I'm going to make it ahead of time with gumpaste and insert several long toothpicks, so once it's hard I can just stick it into the head of the duck!)

HTH get you started


here is a video, the end result is not all that perfect...but it might give you an idea of where to start?

I don't know, I can't get the video to work anyhow!
