Rubber Duckie You're The One

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.

  1. No, no, no...this is how the song goes...

    Two little duckies I once knew
    Fat one, skinny one,
    There were two
    But the one little ducky with the feather on his back?
    He was the leader with the quack, quack, quack!

    hehe, love the duckies!

  2. The duckies, *spotted* and otherwise are cute and Cristin, I love that you seem to always include matching bag closures with your cookies.

    Great work-out! Just typing that you bike 47miles is making my legs ache:)

  4. @The Vanilla Bean Baker Paul thank you for noticing my extra work on the cookie tags. My daughter says that no one will ever notice the extra work I put into finding and purchasing matching clip-art for the cookie bags. You seriously made my day Paula - as always! :-) Cristin
