My frog cake was for a good friend of mine's mother. She has collected frogs for many years just as I have myself, so this cake was a lot of fun for me. I used the Wilton butterfly pan and 1/2 of the soccer 3D pan. I went online and Googled frog cakes to get some sort of a pattern to use and went from there.
I used black candy for the eyelashes and cut a fruit roll up in a spiral for the tongue. I used cupcakes for the little flowers on the sides and used the fruit roll up that's in a bar shape to make cat tails or pussy willows next to the flowers. I also added some candy rocks along the side to give it the pond feature. As you can see I used the blue foil on the board to make it look like water. As a little extra I made the inside of the white cake green just for fun.
Thanks to the posting by Tarra M.,Caldwell, ID (frog 06)for her Froggie Birthday Cake. I followed her instructions to the letter and Voila! A frog cake emerged.
My cupcake eyes were the only part that didn't work easily for me but this was the first character cake I EVER made and my 2 year old daughter LOVED it!
Use a single cake mix (I used a light cake), 9in circle cake pan and 8in square and 2 cupcakes without liners (all using just the one cake mix).
Using the square cake, cut 2 L shapes out for legs, round off the tops and feet. Use the circle cake as is and attach the cupcakes (for eyes) and feet with toothpicks (or 1/2 skewer sticks).
I used the Wilton recipe for buttercream frosting, portioning out amounts for the different colors. I used my cookie press with a star-tip to decorate, starting with the dark green, leaving spots for lighter green spots. I used a pink line for the smile.
I made these cupcakes for my daughter's first birthday party. Her name is Lily, so frogs and lilypads are a pretty common theme for her. I used: - Green icing for the head - 1 large marshmallow (per cupcake) cut in half for the eyes - Small tube of glossy black icing - Stawberry fruit roll-ups
Make the cupcakes as usual and make sure they're cool before applying the icing. Cut the marshmallows in half (this is pretty sticky, so be warned) Cut the fruit roll-ups into strips Before the icing is dry, place the marshmallows onto the cupcakes and put dots on them for the pupils. Try to get the "tongues" underneath the icing Let them sit overnight to make sure the "eyes" settle nicely into the cupcake
Everyone thought they were pretty cute and they were easy to make! They don't look professional, but they were fun to make!
I made this homemade froggie 1st birthday cake for my nephew's first birthday. The reason why we chose a frog for the cake was because he was born 7 weeks early and his first stuffed toy which was a frog was bigger than what he was.
The cake was made using 3 chocolate cakes baked in pudding tins and then shaped to size. I used fondant for the entire body, including eyes, legs and arms.
