I’m baking a 3D rubber ducky cake for my son’s first birthday. I tried it once using Wilton’s 3D Duck Pan, a cake mix and frosted it with homemade buttercream and dessicated coconut. So far it turned out alright though the cake was a little crumbly.
I do have a some qns though.
1) Would using a pound cake be better as the first time i baked it, the head cracked and fell off (lol) (managed to ‘glue’ it back with buttercream.)?
2) is it possible to fill the cake with a nice filling or should i just use mouselline frosting infused with some flavouring(coconut perhaps?)
3) what are the possible cake flavours and frosting to go with the dessicated coconut.
Thank you so much for your time and input
