Hippity hop, this little green froggy cake is so simple and cute for a amphibious birthday party! Or, go wild with a frog themed party which includes fried frog legs and dip, gummy froggy candies, green hued bubbly sodas with stripey straws, and this adorable cake!

What You’ll Need

  • 1 baked and cooled cake
  • 2 cups of vanilla buttercream, tinted green using gel food colouring
  • White craft paper
  • Pink craft paper
  • Black craft paper
  • Scissors
  • Gluestick
  • 2 wooden BBQ skewers
  • Tape
  • A tiny amount of black fondant or a piece of black shoestring licorice


DIY Frog Cake

Step 1
Cut out two large white circles out of craft paper. I used a 2 inch craft circle punch for even circles. Cut out two black triangle “right angle” shapes for the frog’s happy eyes and glue onto the white circles. Cut out a long strip of pink paper and cut a little v-shape out of it for the frog’s tongue.

Step 2
Cut one wooden BBQ skewer in two. Adhere the eyes to the sticks with tape, then adhere the pink tongue to the second skewer with tape.

Frost your entire cake with the green buttercream using an offset spatula.

Step 5
Roll a tiny piece of black fondant into a skinny snake-like shape. Place it on top of the cake like a mouth. Add the pink tongue by placing the wooden skewer into the cake underneath the “mouth.”

There you have it! The easiest, happiest green froggy cake ever! Happy cake decorating!
