I actually got the idea for the frog cake from the other frog cakes on this great site. My cake dimensions turned out a little different so the cake changed a little too. My 14 year old daughter had never worked on a cake before and ended up doing the entire cake for her 4 year old brother.

I made two boxed cake batters, one in chocolate and one in yellow to give our guests a choice. I made the frog body in a 9 inch springform pan and filled it about 2/3 full.

I made a square 8 inch to cut out the two L shaped legs. I first made a template from paper.
I made several cupcakes and used the leftover batter to make a thin 8 inch round cake. Because my cupcakes were too small, I used a drinking glass and traced out two round discs from the 8 inch round cake. They were slightly bigger than the cupcakes and I sat each of the cupcakes on them to give make them higher. With the body being taller than a normal 9 inch round, the cupcakes were way too small by themselves.

I made two batches of buttercream icing. I thinned the first one with corn syrup and iced the entire cake like Wilton suggested to seal in the crumbs. The second batch we colored and used the number 21 star tip on most all of it.

Thanks again for the original frog cake on this site as we wouldn't have gotten this cake without it.

To do this Frog Cake I found a picture I liked on the internet doing a "frog prince" search. I traced it on wax paper, cut it out, laid it on the cake, and outlined with dark green icing.

I filled in the details free hand. I star tipped in the 2 shades of green and gold crown and piped in the mouth and eyes (smoothed out with icing paint brush.)

I used left over icing and star tipped the edging on the top and along the bottom edge. The small cake was a "smash cake" for the little boy who was turning one.

I was inspired for this frog birthday cake by a pin I had found online. I used the shape of the pin as the overall idea for his body. I baked two cake pans one 9x10 and another 8x8. I butted the two cakes together smaller at the top and centered them.

I then traced with a knife the body and cut it out. I frosted the entire cake with buttercream and then used a star tip for the rest and a piped the details in. The fly was made with fondant and food coloring.

Thanks for looking!

My son always loved frogs, so for his 6th birthday I decided to give a frog cake a try. I had been wanting to try a fondant cake so this proved to be a great opportunity.

I baked two cake mixes divided into a round pan, square pan and cupcakes for the body parts. The legs were cut from the square cake.

I used Wilton packaged fondant and colored using Wilton leaf green, black and Christmas red.

This Frog Birthday Cake is the cake for my son's 1st birthday. It is a 4qt Pyrex bowl x2 with cupcake eyes and a 9" round cake pan cut in half for the legs.

I used an airhead for the tongue. It was fun to make and quite a challenge.
