Duck Theme Baby Shower Cake

I made this cake for my niece's baby shower yesterday.  It was a duck theme shower for a baby boy.  I was going to use the special 3D duck pan, but I couldn't find one and when I looked online, I thought it was a little expensive.  I decided to make square "presents" and then do the ducks.  I used two rectangle pans for the bottom and top (I cut the rectangle in a square and used the leftover to cut two smaller squares for the top layer).  For the middle layer, I just used two square pans.  I covered each layer in white fondant and then colored the fondant blue and cut out the "ribbons".  I colored fondant yellow and used a cookie cutter to cut out the ducks and used frosting to stick them on the cake.  I used the Wilton #21 tip to do the blue trim with store-bought vanilla frosting tinted blue.  The rubber ducks I found at a party supply store.  It was my first cake using fondant, and it was a little harder than I thought to roll it out, but not as hard as I thought to smooth it out.  All of the guests were amazed, everyone wanted to know where I ordered it!  I told them I ordered it from my kitchen!
