Hi everyone! Are you ready for more cuteness? I have mentioned before my love for Wilton’s mini wonder mold pan. Here’s another reason why… you can make the most adorable frogs with them! I usually just make one at a time– to use as a fun cake topper or centerpiece.
Let’s start from the beginning. …
Next, I decorated assorted, small sugar cookies with royal icing. I outlined with stiff royal icing, flooded with loose royal icing. These are going to be cupcake toppers! I set aside a couple of small round ones…you’ll see why later.
As the icing becomes hard, it’s safe to decorate your cookies with stiff consistency royal– If this is a little boy’s party, you’ll probably go with a different color scheme…maybe even pipe some creepy crawlers onto the cookies….but, I tend to go girly whenever possible…hence the pink and yellow and cute little dragonflies and daisies :0)
Here are those couple of cookies that I mentioned earlier– I poked toothpicks into them, and layered on some fondant froggy eyes. (You could also pipe royal icing eyes onto the cookies….or make marshmallow eyes with chocolate chip centers) —
Now, let’s check in on Froggy– eyes make all the difference! So do legs, piped in buttercream (I’m only halfway through the job) — and of course, a smile. Nobody likes a grumpy frog.
Lucky for us, BeBe just so happens to have a fish pond in her back yard! Isn’t this the CUTEST? I love the little cookie cupcake toppers—and Froggy steals the show! Usually, the birthday boy or girl gets to eat the frog….but since I don’t see and birthday boys or girls around, I guess I’ll have to take care of it :O) — Goodbye for now, happy caking!
