Create a batch of Duck Pond Punch at the next Rubber Ducky Party. Simply float a bunch of rubber duckies in a bowl of blue Kool-Aid and have party goers select one. If they select one with a star on the bottom – they win a prize.

It's an ongoing family tradition going back generations that the birthday child always get's their own cake for the first birthday. Typically this is the first cake the child will have ever had so it makes it even more special. The cakes are made s…
