My son wanted a frog birthday cake. I looked at your site with him and he came up with this frog cake idea himself. I was ready to do the frog shape with the round pan, and the square, etc, but he wasn’t too keen on that one. I wasn’t just going to toss some plastic frogs on the cake so I had to at least make them some lily pads to rest on.
I just used regular box cake mix and regular can icing. I put the icing into a baggie and cut the corner off where I can use an icing tip. I used the flat tip for the lily pads. He approved, and that’s all that matters.
