Donald Duck

Who gets stuck with all the bad luck?! No one, but Donald Duck!

We can remember this catchy tune being used in the introduction of Donald Duck’s classic cartoon shorts. Fortunately, Donald gets to enjoy being a lucky Duck this week! He first appeared on June 9, 1934. Today, we’ll show you how to make your very own Donald Duck cupcake so you can celebrate at home.


  • Batch of baked cupcakes
  • White frosting
  • Yellow Swedish Fish candies
  • Kitchen knife or scissors
  • Small black jellybeans
  • Tube of black decorating icing


  1. Frost the cupcakes, using the knife to pull the frosting up into a couple feathery peaks at the top of the head.

  2. For a duck bill, slice a yellow Swedish Fish candy in half lengthwise. Then press the two halves into the frosting, separating them slightly, at the very edge of the cupcake top (opposite the feathery frosting peaks).

  3. For eyes, press two black jellybeans into the frosting. Use the black decorating icing to pipe on curved eyebrows about 3/8 inch above the eyes.
