Jemima Puddleduck

Months and months ago, a friend contacted me on Facebook and asked if I could bake a cake for her daughter's first birthday in October.

She wanted something sweet, with a vintage-feel to it, preferably in pink with a little duck on it.

After a couple of weeks emailing back and forth, I finally came up with the idea to do a cake covered in a mixture of fondant and buttercream. With a little fondant duck on top.

Now the duck in question took a bit of deliberation - she didn't want a typical rubber ducky, and we wanted something to fit the theme. So after foraging through ducky images on the Internet, I chanced upon Jemima Puddleduck, from the Beatrix Potter series. How delightfully perfect!!

Next up - to actually make the cake! A Red Velvet affair, with white chocolate ganache, to feed 50 people!


I'll post up a mini-tutorial on how I did the duck soon.

Have a great weekend!

(PS. Big thanks to Sandy for the pic of the cake at Sophie's party!)
