Cupcakes! Cupcakes! And more Cupcakes!!!

Everybody in the polymer clay world has a cuter and more detailed version
of the classic cupcake…
….  cupcakes you can’t even eat!  Ha!

You can’t match how the Beadlady is doing her delightful goodies. 
Details of her work is superb!!! 
Too yummy you wanna bite.  But you'll have a tootache afterwards hehe.

Thanks to her, I learned how to whip up all these inedible cupcakes!

I never imagined that doing the polymer clay version is more time consuming than baking the real stuff! 



Just putting the faux whipped cream is making my head spin with all the twirling.  No matter what I do they are getting to be lopsided. 

Wait a minute, the real cupcakes get lopsided too!

Compare mine to the creations of The Beadlady above ... geez is there are reason to compare?







Aside from the whipped cream, adding all the tiny sprinkles was taking me forever arghhhhh!  Not only that, I thought that the faux sprinkles would stick to the faux whipped cream and stay there ….

I was fauxed! 

You got it right, as soon as I put out the cupcakes from the oven, the sprinkles started to fall off rolling to never, never, never everland…. Yikes!



Solution…Glaze! 

Tell me, why do I need to glaze all the cupcakes?  
To make it shiny, sugary, splendid?  

NO! 
To make the sprinkles stay where they ought to be. Yummy effect huh?





Whew!  With edible cupcakes, you just buy those sprinkles, drizzle and go munch! 
Besides, with the real stuff, I could be stuffed!! 
Hmmmmm………better not get into that or I'll lose my 24-inch waistline.  
Ha! In my dreams!!!.

What would make my cupcake different???

I got it!  I’ll just make my cupcake quack….

Quack!......  Quack!  Quack! Quack!

            Quack!  Quack! .....  Quack!  Quack!  Quack!

                        Quack!......  Quack!  Quack!  Quack!  Quack!

                                    Quack!  Quack!  Quake! Quack!

            Quack!......  Quack! … Quack!.... Quack!

                                    Quack!  Quack!  Quack! Quack!

…………………My goodness!  After all those quacking, I could swear that the spelling of quack is getting wrong!  I just don’t know where it is????  Can you help me find it?


If you visit my home, I have ducks everywhere.  Well, not the real critter.  But maybe when I get a house with a pond I could get a pair and watch how funny they walk.

I got the idea when I came across a cupcake book (the edible ones) that I eventually gifted to my sister (she decorates using fondant and gumpaste, the edible ones too).  I told her to bake me one of these since I love ducks.  She hasn’t baked the ducks for me yet, so I baked mine.  And here they are….

 These quackers are so adorable, don’t you think? 


Ducks on a platter.
Pretend it’s a pond.



Ducks chatting.
“Were you there when Petunia laid all those ducklings with spots!?” said one duck
"Petunia who?" says the other.




Ducks diving.
“Oooops!  Food!  Got to go!”



More diving.
“Get your beak on that fish sister dear!”



Ducks in a row.
“Can’t you see?  This idiot is taking our picture from all angles
and our sisters have their tails up in the air!  How awful!”



Here I added some coins for reference of scale.  See the cat at the background?  He would even like to give them a paw.

Well, that’s all my dearies.. enough said of the cupcakes… and the ducks.



My model for the duckies is patiently waiting for me so I could take a bath.

Tah-tah for now!
