Rubber Ducky Cupcakes

Blue and yellow look so pretty together. Imagine two dozen vanilla cupcakes with light blue buttercream icing, each topped with a miniature rubber ducky. Sandra handcrafted each duck using yellow and orange fondant. They likely wouldn’t float, but they look so much like the real thing, it wouldn’t surprise me if they did!

Nemo and Dory Birthday Cupcakes

The making of Nemo and Dory birthday party cupcakes began with 32 vanilla cupcakes. (If you’re visiting this blog from the DesignerCookie’s newsletter, and you guessed “vanilla” — give yourself a pat on the back — you guessed right!).
