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.

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!
