How can I decorate cupcakes for a rubber ducky themed baby shower to look like blue bubbles? What decorator tip can I use?

You can make or buy some ready made fondant {If ready made, knead a little flavoring into it}, Roll different sized balls, then dust them lightly with luster dust. The luster comes in different colors, it's edible, and readily available at craft stores that carry cake decorating supplies. I buy mine at Michael's. When dry, you can stack them around the duckie with sm. drops of icing. Good luck

Do you work with fondant? If so you could roll a few different size balls and brush them with luster dust of pearl and that would look great. Make some small and some larger...Maybe?

That's a good one, maybe you could use clear Gel and use a larger round hole tip and some smaller round tips. That's the only idea That I can come up with..Or you could color the Gel with a light blue color. I don't know if that will work but you could try it on a piece of wax paper...Best of Luck Nancy of CA nrcourtney@aol.com
