For our auntie that loves frogs, this Frog birthday cake was for her. I started by making a 1/4 chocolate sheet cake for the base of the cake, and 1 9" round for the frog. I again used my homemade marshmallow fondant, the base was crumb coated in butter cream frosting then covered with fondant.
I cut the corners of the sheet cake off and saved them for the frogs eyes. I "glued" the two halves of the round cake together with frosting, and set them up on the flat end crumb coated the frog part of the cake and placed two of the corners on top of the rounds to make the bumps for eyes.
Then covered the whole thing with green fondant. The blue was then piped on with a star tip for water. Flowers, mouth, and tongue were made with gum paste along with the fly that didn't come out so well.
This is a Frog Birthday Cake for a family member. I looked everywhere for a frog cake that I liked. I ended up finding a picture in a coloring book I liked so I blew it up and just cut the cake out to look like it. I made two 9x13 cakes to ensure I had plenty of cake to work with.
I used cream cheese frosting tinted green and chocolate frosting for the outline. I made the frog with the star tip and iced the leaf flat to give it a shiny look.
The cake took about and hour to make from start to finish. It was a big hit and I will for sure make it again!
I shuddered when my nearly three year old said he wanted a FROG cake!
I found a picture of this homemade Frog cake with directions on the internet. I baked two round cakes in pyrex bowls, small and large. I placed the smaller dome on the larger one and then began to ice. I used plastic icing to ice the frog and make his arms and legs. I copied the picture I had seen and sculpted his mouth and eyes with additional plastic icing. I used the back of a paintbrush to mark his nose and mouth. It was my first attempt using plastic icing; it was easier than expected and such fun too!
This Homemade Frog Birthday Cake was made using the Wilton 3D bear pan. I trimmed off the arms and tail and used the ears for eyes. The arms are made of dowel rods covered in icing. His fingers are lollipop sticks folded in half and stuck into icing and covered using the star tip in buttercream.
The lily pad is made using a cardboard cake circle covered in green fondant. The base is done using the comb for the water texture and the flowers are royal icing swirl flowers made ahead of time.
This was for a girl's 16th birthday and she was VERY surprised!

I made this Frog Birthday Cake for my granddaughter's birthday. She loves frogs and I try to find anything I can that has to do with frogs so this is what she got for her cake.
I used a 7" round for the base, a heart shape for most of the body (the head and torso) and Twinkies for the legs and hips. I used a crusting buttercream so that I could smooth it with my fingers once it was dry. The tongue was made with thickened up buttercream, then molded to shape.
