I found out my daughter had celiac disease recently, so she cannot eat any gluten. My younger daughter's birthday was coming up and she loves frogs and the color green. So, I called my friend who had made an awesome dragon cake! It was great! So I made this Homemade Frog Birthday Cake.
I made a 9x12 cake, 2 5x5 cakes & 1 9"round. PLUS, we had some older Wilton cake molds that look like half eggs. I made them all. I had to make everything out of gluten free stuff - the great news is that it is SO easy to apply the icing!
We laid the 9x12 on a cake board and put the 9"round on top. Then my friend used a serrated bread knife and made a triangular shape for a nose. She used what we cut off the make webbed feet. We used the 2 5"rounds as eyes and sliced the half-egg shaped cake pans down the sides for back legs.
At this point we were jumping up and down because it looked great. Then we used the meltable chocolate discs to create "warts" and some green sparkles. For toes we used pink M&M's! Finally we just mixed a little bit of the white icing we had saved to the side and colored it black and made eyes!
The next morning I showed it to the birthday girl (3) and she said "My frog cake, can I eat it?"

My daughter's 3rd birthday was approaching and we were trying to decide on what to make for her cake! My daughter had taken a liking to a green frog that decided to live in our bathroom so we decided a frog it was!
I had already purchased the Wilton Butterfly cake tin and discovered that with a printable template that you can obtain online you can turn the butterfly cake tin into a frog!
The cake tin took 2 packet mixes to fill. Once the cake had baked and cooled I went about icing it! I used a buttercream icing which was very easy to make and used Wilton food colourings which are so vibrant and great to use! I first of all iced the sides with a blue colour using an icing spatula.
I piped the buttercream - following the directions from the template - very easy and probably only took around 1 - 1 1/2hrs to ice. For the eyes I used a mix of icing sugar and water and moulded it into a thick texture and shaped the eyes from it and then added black food colour to the thick icing mixture and made the black part of the eyes! Very easy and very effective! Around the base of the cake I piped a basic edge to finish it off!
This Homemade Frog Birthday Cake Idea was very easy to make and the kids loved it! It was a hit at the party that's for sure!
This Homemade Frog Birthday Cake is a 10" double layer cake. I covered the cake in a light brown buttercream. I made the little frogs out of fondant that I colored green. I made them after watching a tutorial on you tube. The biggest frog has a party hat on for the occasion.
The reeds were made with spaghetti at different lengths with brown fondant tips. I colored fondant with very little black to make river rocks. I added toad stools and lily pads. I made the lily flowers with a flower cutter from a kit. I rolled lighter green fondant out and cut some grass and made little lady bugs that I placed on a lily pad and river rock. I piped some of the light brown buttercream in the shape of a pond and I colored piping gel blue and filled it in. I sprinkled brown sugar for the dirt.
I made little signs on the front for the occasion which was a retirement and I used the grass tip and piped grass all along the bottom.
