Rubber Duckie Cupcakes


These were quite a hit at our duck-themed party Saturday night! I got the idea from


Here's how (They use melted yellow frosting, but I used candy melts.):

Begin with a plain cupcake. I used vanilla.


Spread it with a little vanilla frosting.


Stick on a donut hole for the head, and a marshmallow cut in half diagonally for the tail.


Secure them with a little more frosting around the head and tail.


I did 6 at a time. Put these in the freezer for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, for each 2 cupcakes, take an orange Starburst Fruit Chew, and cut it in half. With your fingers, smash it into a long rectangle, and round each end, so you have a long oval. Bend it in half to make a beak.

When the cupcakes are chilled, dip them in a bowl of melted yellow candy melts. I get them at Michael's (they have all colors), and attach the beak. Chill in fridge, and make 6 more.


Lastly, when they are all chilled, pipe on eyes, OR "glue on" a brown mini M&M.

For the "butt up" ducks, just glue on a marshmallow half in the center, freeze, dip in yellow coating. Cut a Starburst in half diagonally to make a triangle, and score it to make two webbed feet. These little guys are diving! (See top photo.)

You never cease to amaze me! Could it have been any hotter for your party?

These are hilarious! I only wish my sister in law saw this 4 years ago when she hosted a duck themed graduation party for my nephew who was heading off to Oregon for college "Oregon Ducks". So cute Palma.
