You know the song from Sesame Street. Come on, sing along with me...
Rubber Duckie, you're the one
you make bathtime lots of fun
Rubber Duckie I'm awfully fond of you
Now that school is back in session and my son's summer job has wrapped up, he is attending the last potluck of the season to say goodbye to his work buddies for the summer. Supposedly his manager has a thing for rubber duckies, so he asked if I would make rubber duckies for the potluck. Of course! These were really fun. I have two cute rubber duckie cookie cutters so I used both. I got the inspiration of adding spots to the duckies from A Dozen Eggs Bake Shoppe.
Here are some of the spotted duckies with one cookie cutter:
and here are duckies from a different cookie cutter without spots:
On both sets of rubber duckies, I outlined the duckie first and then filled with lots of colors:
then I left them to dry for a bit and I iced the rubber duckie wing separately and right away added sanding sugar to each wing for an extra pop effect. I have a bit of a fetish for sanding sugar I think ;-)
Then I bagged all the cookies for cute boy to take to his potluck:
I hope you are having a wonderful weekend! I went for a bike ride yesterday (finally) and got in a good 47-mile work-out. The ride was supposed to be a whole lot longer, but cute boy had a problem with his car and needed a bit of rescuing, so I had to alternate my ride plans a bit. Today I'm hoping to get some work caught up in my home office before heading off to a college fair.
Please take a moment today to remember those heroes that gave their lives 10 years ago today.
