The star tip creates the most celebrated, easily accomplished decorations! The serrated edges of the star tip make ridges in the icing as you squeeze it out. Because fill in requires so much piping from the same bag, keep replenishing icing in bag.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made this a few years back for a friend's baby shower, before the design above was published. I put the ducky on an oval single layer cake iced smooth with white buttercream. Used mix of white and blue (medium dark / royal) and using largest star tip, made large shell border on the oval cake. Made cupcakes with extra cake mix and iced with remaining white/blue icing, same decorator tip, and placed them on a Wilton cupcake stand. Used the matching duck candy molds and placed a candy duck on top of each cupcake. The cake and cupcakes turned out great and truly were the second most hit of the party (the mom to be and baby were top hit :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This cake looked fantastic after I finished it. I had to make two ducks because the first one I did not grease and flour it properly and it came out in pieces. The second one I used Wiltons Cake Release and it worked wonders and came out perfect. I used fondant on the duck and it looked great, but you need to take your time and not try to use one piece of fondant to cover the duck. I wrapped the body first and then the head, It looked so good my 9 year old nephew wanted to take it to school to show all his friends!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Instead of the fondant I iced the cake and used glitter to make the blue appear as though it was water. Make the duck cake out of pound cake, not a regular cake mix. Used small peeps around the large duck to create the number of family members. Arrival duck was in pink to reflect the new daughter to be born. Made cupcakes and topped them with the peeps. Made for an excellent table centerpiece. Everyone really liked the idea. Peeps do keep for a while so I stocked up after Easter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this some years ago for a friends first grand daughters' first birthday, but made it out of all buttercream without the smaller duckies. This family was not into fondant. I added a small cluster of purple flowers on the ducky's head since it was for a girl, and some waves with the buttercream in the blue waters, but it turned out cute and all loved it. The duck was a favorite pound cake recipe and I doubled it to make sure it baked all the way to the top and used the excess batter to make a few small pound cakes(Lwith the same colors),one of which we added a small duck for the birthday child to smash with her little hands. Duck was secured to a ten inch round pan, decorated for water with waves on the top and along the sides instead of a shell border. It was fairly easy and turned out better than expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I done this cake for a baby shower. But I did it with buttercream icing and I star tipped the duck. Everybody loved it, I even got calls from a couple of people that they wanted me to do a cake for them. I love Wilton products. I didn't think it was that hard to do you gave very good instructions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made this cake as a baby shower cake. 1st I made a larger sheet cake and sectioned it out to be a quilt and filled it with pastel colors, then I took the duck part of the bathtime cake and made him seperate to put on a seperate plate to save for his 1st birthday. It all turned out great.
