Rubber Ducky Baby Shower Cake

Well, this cake didn't get too many photos. I am hoping to get a better one from others who took pictures.

This is a white sheet cake (1/2 sheet) with a 6" in the corner. The Shower was ALL ABOUT DUCKY'S!! So what do you do but a ducky cake! The cake is iced with a whipped cream icing loosely frosted to look like foamy bubbles. The water is my first attempt at playing with sugar! After the sugar was rolling and temp at 300 degrees, I poured it onto a sheet of marble and shaped it to resemble water in a tub full of bubbles! All the bubbles are icing as well. The Ducks are actually CHOCOLATE! Found them at Target! Great find!

The shower was a thought that just kept coming..... you know those thoughts?? It is a dowel and a carved Styrofoam ball for the shower head all covered with fondant. The water is very thin wire with clear piping gel stuck to the wire and left alone to harden. The big bubbles (yes, on sticks that you can see through the bubbles), and the letters 'It's A Boy', are gum paste!
