Soon after I opened my Etsy shop, I got an order for duck cake toppers. A very sweet customer in New York was excited to get custom ducks made for her wedding cake, as she and her fiance love to feed the ducks on the lake near their home. So the ducks were a special part of their relationship they wanted to tie in to their wedding day, and the ducks also make a lovely keepsake that the happy couple can keep forever.
Her wedding colors are bright green and orange, perfect for their early Spring wedding this April.
Last summer my best friend got married. When she got engaged, I offered to make the cake toppers for her wedding cake. Her husband (who happens to be my husband’s best friend – our successful attempt at match-making!) loves ducks, so it seemed like the perfect choice. The only cake toppers I’d made before were our penguins, but I figured ducks weren’t that far of a stretch – like penguins, they are round little birdies with cute little feet and are overall adorable.
I tried to make them somewhat realistic to the coloring of male and female ducks, but with that sort of whimsical, cartoonish quality. Of course, the flowers, bow tie and accessories matched their wedding colors, and I also included a tiny little silver trumpet under the male duck’s arm, since the groom is a trumpet player.
Thanks for letting me make your ducks, friends! 🙂
The ducks on their big day
Beautiful bride - happy couple!
