Height of the topper: 9 cm
- 5 mm ball tool or bone tool
- dresden tool
- cocktail stick
Sugarpaste (with CMC):
- 157 g yellow
- 2 x 4 mm ball black
- 11 mm ball orange
Roll a 75 g ball of yellow sugarpaste. Form a teardop shape.
Create a curved teardrop shape and insert a cocktail stick as shown in the photo. You might need to trim the cocktail stick a little.
Roll a 75 g ball of yellow sugarpaste and stick it onto the body. Use a ball tool to make indentations for the eyes. I spaced them 4 cm away from each other. I turned the head slightly around (so that the duck is looking slightly to its right).
The photo above shows how to make the wings (3 g ball). Use a dresden tool to make the indented lines. Repeat this step for the second wing (mirror reflection).
Stick the wings on. Roll two 4 mm balls of black flower paste and stick them on as eyes.
Roll an 11 mm ball of orange flower paste. Use both index fingers and thumbs to press the ball to the board to create an elongated diamond shape. Shape the beak as shown in the photo.
Stick the beak to the head. Use a dresden tool to mark a line as shown in the photo (see also next step).
Use the dresden tool to create the nostrils.
Roll three 5 mm balls of yellow sugarpaste. Form teardrop shapes. Stick them on the top of the head.
