Additional Information

Step 1

Prepare Icing We suggest that you tint all icings at one time while cake cools. Refrigerate tinted icings in covered containers until ready to use.

Make 5 1/4 cups buttercream icing:
Tint 4 1/2 cups Lemon Yellow with a small amount of Golden Yellow
Tint 1/4 cup orange (thin with 1/4 teaspoon light corn syrup)
Tint 1/4 cup blue
Reserve 1/4 cup white

Step 2

Decorate in Order

Ice beak smooth with thinned orange icing. Trace mouth opening with spatula.

Step 3

Use tip 3 and white icing to pipe-in whites of eyes (smooth with finger dipped in cornstarch).

Step 4

Use tip 3 and blue icing to pipe-in pupils (smooth with fingers dipped in cornstarch).

Step 5

Use tip 16 and yellow icing to cover duck with stars.

Step 6

Use tip 16 and yellow icing to pipe pull-out star wings.

Step 7

Baking Instructions Preheat oven to 350ºF. We recommend hand washing pan in hot, soapy water.

Generously grease inside of pan halves with Wilton Cake Release or solid vegetable shortening (do not use butter, margarine or liquid vegetable oil. Be sure to cover all indentations. If using shortening, sprinkle about 2 Tablespoons flour inside each pan half and shake so flour covers all greased surfaces.

Turn pan halves upside down and tap lightly to remove excess flour. If any shiny spots remain, touch up with more shortening and flour to prevent cake from sticking.

Make cake mix according to package directions, or use your favorite scratch recipe. (You will need a full 5 1/2 cups of batter.) Pound cake, yellow or chocolate batters, packaged mixes or your own recipe, are firm and offer the best results.

Batters that contain nuts or raisins do not work well. Pour batter into the front half of pan (half without hole). The batter will come right to the rim, almost to the point of overflowing.

Snap the back half of the pan in place and tie pans tightly together in two places with household cotton string or wire, to prevent rising batter from forcing pans apart.

Spread aluminum foil on bottom rack of oven to catch any batter that may seep through while baking.

Bake on cookie sheet on middle rack of oven for 50-60 minutes, until toothpick inserted in vent hole on top of pan comes out clean. Top half of pan may be removed during last ten minutes of baking to check cake.

When cake is done, remove from oven and place on cake rack to cool for 5 minutes. Then remove top half of pan and cool 5 minutes more. Replace top pan, turn cake over and remove bottom pan. It may be necessary to tap pan with the handle of a spatula to free cake from pan.

Now, let cake rest in front half of pan, lying down, until completely cool. (At least four hours.) Remove cake from pan by placing one hand gently on cake surface and setting cake and pan upright on serving platter. Then carefully slip top away from cake. If cake does not stand level, trim bottom or prop underneath with icing.

We recommend hand washing pan in hot, soapy water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made two ducks for a groom's cake. The newlyweds had a beach-themed reception and wanted a groom's cake to match. The two ducks were iced as directed in the instructions with tip 21 stars on the body and tip 21 pull-out stars on the wings, smooth-iced orange bill and blue eyes, then they were put on a bed of 'sand' made from crushed vanilla cookies, and a purple-and-white striped beach ball was between them. I made the groom's top hat and bow tie from black fondant, and the bride had a little tulle veil secured to a toothpick and covered with gum paste flowers stuck into her head. It was a huge hit with everyone at the reception. One of the bride's friends had a sense of humor. She lopped off the groom duck's head, put it on a plate, then handed it to the bride, right in front of everyone at the reception.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this cake for my son's first birthday. The pan comes in two parts. You pour the batter in one side and snap the other on for a solid cake. This is nice because you dont have to try and line up two cakes. It was easy to decorate with the start tip and the buttercream frosting. Everyone loved it and it was a hit! It is also neat that you can make a jello ducky if you use one side and cool it in the fridge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this cake for my son"s 1st birthday. It was fabulous. Its an easy cake and looks great. I placed it on a bed of thin blue jello that I set in a shallow cake dish---it elicited many oohs and aahs. I used groupings of yellow, orange and blue balloons to decorate around the room, and also floated some duckies in a large punch bowl of pale blue(food color) water.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This cake was fun to make...so much so I did it twice, however when I made it I placed the cake on a "pond" (round cake) so it would be easier to secure to stand up. It was simple to make with just using the star tip and the nice part was in the end if the stars where not perfect that was OK because it made the duck look more natural

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I LOVED making this cake. It came out of the pan beautifully. I used a tip 21 star tip to cover the duck and I used white candy wafers and blue m&m's for the eyes. It was a big hit at the rubber ducky themed party! When you bake you cake I suggest using cake release and baking the day before you frost it. Good Luck!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from i did this for my daughter's 1st bday...had to make it twice...baking the cakes seperately is the trick to this set...after the cake is baked level out the center...adhere with your frosting just like you would with a regular layer cake...the outside frosting will also help hold the sections together...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a fun cake to make! I made this for a baby shower i had for my son and daughter-in law. I made a double layer full sheet cake and decorated it like a pond using piping gel colored blue for the water. The whole party theme was yellow rubber ducks. The guest and my daughter-in-law loved it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have used this cake for several baby shower cakes. I absolutely LOVE it! It is very easy to use and always turns out great. I did not have any problems with it sticking or the pan not turning out to be the correct shapes as I have had with other pans. I would defiantly recommend this pan!!
