Duck Under Cover Cake is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I loved making this cake. It was moderately easy, but requires some skill. The umbrella scared me, but with the clear directions that Wilton gave it was easy peasy. I love the duck pan that you use for this. I forgot to tie it up so don't make the same mistake that I did. Twine him up tight. I would make this cake again and again if given the chance to. It was a fun cake and the young lady that it was made for loved it. I bought the separator plate used in this cake specifically for this but I have used it time and again for other occasions. If you have a duck themed baby shower, I recommend this cake for the beginner and the experienced alike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was a very cute baby shower idea. We just made a few changes to some of the decorations. Lots of possiblities with different colors, etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super cute cake! We made this for a baby shower. The fondant pieces should be prepared a few days in advance to allow time to dry. Also, make sure you have plenty of melted candy around the stick in the umbrella so it doesn't fall off (it tends to be a little heavy). I mix a box of instant pudding mix in with my cake mix for 3D cakes to make them a little sturdier, but still moist and delicious. This cake was a lot of fun to make and share! :D
