My granddaughter turned 10 this year. I asked what she would like her cake to be. I really didn’t need to ask as she is an avid frog lover! Of course her answer was a frog birthday cake. I made her a cake last year that had a frog on it made of gum paste and cut out so I wanted to do something different.
The web is a wonderful place to find ideas so I searched there and went to different cake stores. I decided to do a very large frog made of rice krispy squares covered in fondant. It was quite easy to sculpture it. I let it sit overnight and then covered it with the fondant and added the legs and eyes to it.
I put the icing on the cake blue and cut out a lilly pad from the fondant. I had made a waterlilly to place on the pad as well. When it was all essembled I wrote Happy Birthday Emma on it and put in the candles.
My granddaughter had been asking me all week what I was doing. I texted her pictures of it in the making but she had to wait till Sunday to see it all together.
She was very happy with it and Gramma was once again the hero! LOL
