Coolest Homemade Frog Pond Birthday Cake

This frog birthday cake was my first using fondant. I made the fondant myself hoping to possibly get a good taste with a marshmallow fondant. I used one 9 inch and two 8 inch round pans. I covered them with buttercream, then fondant as a base. I sprayed the “water” with cooking spray to give it a shiny finish and make it look more like a pond.

I decorated the borders with grass and leaves, using the Wilton tips. I made the cattails from toothpicks dipped in colored melting chocolate. The frogs I also made from molds with colored melting chocolate. The lily pads are made of cut-out fondant All the decorating was with buttercream and chocolate.

I had a LOT of fun doing this one and was happy it turned out well since I had not worked with fondant before. I think I will do it again, if I have the time! I would normally like a more simple cake–less busy–but my daughter loves to have lots going on with her cakes!

  1. I tried to copy this cake because it was so cute and my daughter loves frogs! I was wondering what the colors of the icing and fondant are….mine came out much less vibrant.

  2. So how did the marshmallow fondant turn out? If been curious about it myself. I do not like the taste of store bought either.

  3. I just made my fondant to duplicate this cake, it is my first time ever making a cake, but it is looking well! the top layer i am making 6 mini cakes and using butter cream frosting to piece them together, each layer will have a different color until i get a rainbow effect!
