Fondant Covered Sugar Cookie Ducks!

My co-worker and good friend Michelle is having a grandbaby! We’re so excited for her as she is the mother of four boys, and she’s having a grand-daughter! So we threw her a surprise shower at work! And we pulled it off without a hitch! She was totally shocked and we had so much fun.

We set up a little table and served cookies and Vietnamese coffee. The morning gal stayed and volunteered her time to serve lunch with me. (Have I mentioned I work  in a school cafeteria?)

Sugar Cookie Ducks

Michelle could sit back and check out all her gifts. Things to stay at grandma’s house!!!

I baked some adorable duck cookies.

I packaged a few cookies for Michelle to take home and share with her family.

Don’t they look all dressed up for Spring? These would also be perfect for Easter, or for a tea party!

I wanted to do onesies for the shower, but I couldn’t find a cookie cutter. But these turned out so cute, I’m glad I couldn’t find one!

Duck Sugar Cookies

First I baked the sugar cookies. I used my favorite recipe.

Duck Sugar Cookies

Then using the same cookie cutter I used for the cookie, I cut out ducks from some rolled fondant.

Fondant Frosted Sugar Cookies

Then I brushed some corn syrup over the entire cookie…

and placed the fondant duck cutout over the cookie. Just give it a little smooth job.

Then using a knife, I gave it a few slits to define some tail feathers.

Cutting off colored beak, I replace them with an orange beak.

I used the Wilton Pastel fondant, so I just mixed a little red food coloring into the yellow fondant and I was good to go! I did cut out the beaks using the nose of the cookie cutter.

Then top them off with a cute little eye! I bought mine from Bake It Pretty.

Now I got all my ducks in a row! :)

I’m thinking I might try a carrot for Easter!

I’m submitting this to Foodie Friday hosted atDesigns by Gollum. Check out all the other foodies and see what they brought to the potluck! You might want to grab a cup of coffee first! :)

Lovely cookies, I am impressed by that method of putting fondant on top rather than having to flood with icing. Will give it a try soon.

Hello there!
I found your blog through a few mutual bloggers, and I saw this post and wanted to comment. These are ADORABLE! My sis and I have been experimenting lately with sugar cookies, and good icings to top them with. I never really thought about using fondant, great idea!

27 karen April 3, 2010 at 5:39 pm

Oh my Megan, those are so cute! I vow to try fondant this summer!

28 ingrid April 3, 2010 at 7:50 pm

Those are totally cute!

32 Beth Luwandi May 25, 2010 at 9:26 am

Every time I see these duckies on your page, I want to bite their little heads off. :) I mean that in the nicest way possible.

33 Sherena September 7, 2010 at 6:28 pm

Ok I have a question. I attempted to make these cookies but when I baked the ducks they baked up larger than the original cookie cutter size so when I cut the fondant it wasn’t a perfect match :( How do I get the cookies to stay their pre-baked size?

34 Megan September 7, 2010 at 10:14 pm

Sherena, My cookies puffed up too but the cut fondant looked fine on them. (see picture) It covered the tops and looked great. The exact same cut makes for an optical illusion of perfection!

Hi Megan,
I am going to make animal farm cookies the same way for my friends baby shower :) I bought the wilton pastel pack and has four colours., how many cookies do you figure you can make with the amount of fondant that is in the package? I am so excited to try this out, I never would have thought of using corn syrup to smooth it out….. thanks for the tips :)

36 Maria - Greece January 21, 2011 at 9:45 am

Very ,very, ducky!!!
Fantastic!

37 Feast on the Cheap April 3, 2011 at 7:38 am

41 Miss @ Miss in the Kitchen April 3, 2011 at 8:27 pm

CUTE! What a great idea!

42 megan @ whatmegansmaking April 4, 2011 at 7:01 pm

These turned out so cute! I love seeing new cookie ideas :)

Baking cupcakes has also become an integral
part of many weekend parties where people get together, share recipes, have
fun baking and decorating, and (the best part) sampling different cupcakes.
When you want to add fun and whimsy to your Easter celebrations,
make sure to be creative with your desserts. A little purse is also likely to be
popular as little girls do love imitating their
mothers.
