Rated 4 out of 5 by anneisbell from Fortunately, I tried using this pan 2 weeks before I needed it for my Grandson's first Birthday. My first attempt resulted in a duck that was fuller on the left than the right side of the duck. This happened because I assumed one cake mix would be enough to fill the base mold. After reading other reviews, I tried adding one small instant pudding, 1 additional egg and 1 extra tablespoon of vegetable oil to the cake mix. This was the perfect volume to fill the mold to the base lip. I used a regular yellow cake mix. It took 60 minutes at 350 degrees to bake. I tested doneness by putting a dry spagetti stick down the air vent all the way to the bottom mold and it came out clean. Be sure to let mold rest at least 5 minutes before removing top of mold. I let it sit another 10 minutes before I put the mold cover back on and flipped it over. I waited another 10 minutes before I removed the second side of the mold. I used vegetable shortening to greese every crevice in the mold and dusted pan with flour. Be sure to include the lip of the mold when preparing the pan. Thank you everyone for adding your comments regarding using this darling "3-D Rubber Ducky pan. Wish I had found this forum before I tried the first time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kalliopaea 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 Christy7499 from This cake is so fun to make. I made this cake for my sister when she turned 15 because she just loves rubber duckies. I have also made it for a baby shower and was of course a huge hit.
