Happy Birthday Donald Duck!
Today, I’m so excited to be participating in a Birthday Blog Hop for my favorite hot-headed feathered friend. Let’s get this party started with some Donald Duck inspired cupcakes!
Are you ready to start celebrating? Here’s a photo tutorial on how to make these super simple Donald Duck inspired cupcakes, including a printable hat template.
Since Donald has white feathers, I chose to make white cake cupcakes. After baking and cooling, I iced them in a simple swirl formation by starting on the outside of the cupcake and making my way to the center. After one swirl, I made a second swirl on top to give it height.
At this point (pun intended), my son walked into the room and said, “Cool Mommy, you made Donald Duck butts!”
I have to admit, I agreed with him. They do look like Donald’s butt. If you’d like to celebrate Donald’s birthday today and you’re pressed for time, then I’m certain you’ll get a chuckle or two from your kids when you present them with Donald Duck butts after school today.
However, if you’d like to make the cupcakes I featured at the beginning of this post, let’s continue to the next step.
Print out this Donald Duck template below and trace it on a piece of blue card-stock. You’ll need two hats for each cupcake.
Donald Duck Hat Template
Hot glue a toothpick and a piece of black ribbon to each hat.
Add a second Donald hat on top with another dab or two of hot glue.
Donald’s hat is now complete and it’s time to move onto his bow-tie.
Using red candy melts in a squeeze bottle, pipe bow-ties on wax paper. To keep my ties consistent, I drew a bow-tie on a piece of paper and used it as a template under the wax paper to trace with chocolate. Allow the chocolate to fully dry before placing them on your iced cupcakes.
Isn’t he such a dapper duck?
