We just loved the Princess and the Frog when it came out so my daughter decided that was what she wanted for her fifth birthday, a Princess and the Frog Cake. Unfortunately I couldn’t find any examples so I was going into it blind.
I just used store bought cake mixes in the Wilton Classic Wonder Mold cake pan. After it cooled I put on a crumb coat of buttercream frosting. I used fondant to make the dress. I dyed the fondant different shades of yellow and green then made the separate layers. The bottom is a lime green cut to fit the mold.
The next layer is a pale yellow cut into points. Then the large sage green leaves around the waist. I had to add a band of fondant around the waist to cover the gap between the bodice and the skirt. The only thing that isn’t fondant is the vine hanging from the flower on her dress. I used an icing writer for that. Then I added some green and pink shimmer dust to give it sparkle.
It wasn’t perfect, but my daughter loved it.
