Are you ready for more cuteness? Today we're making an adorable miniature frog cake!

First, I coated with a yummy, crusting vanilla buttercream.  I waited for it to crust, then smoothed with a Viva paper towel.The cutest mini frog cake tutorial by! Makes a great cake topper! Free tutorial.

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) --Adorable mini frog cake tutorial by!

Froggy needs a tongue--so he can catch flies, bugs, and nearby cupcakes.  Mine is gum paste, that I allowed to dry nice and wavy and pinched around a piece of 20 gauge floral wire on one end. Cute mini frog cake tutorial by! Online cake tutorials and recipes!

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!
