How to Make a Birthday Cake Shaped Like a Frog

Updated February 21, 2017

Treat your little prince or princess to a frog birthday cake to celebrate his or her big day. Though this frog won't turn into royalty when kissed, it will taste delicious. It also creates a possible theme for a birthday party. Buy green decorations; have the kids colour pictures of frogs while they wait for all the guests to arrive; play Frog, Frog, Tadpole instead of Duck, Duck, Goose; and don't forget Leapfrog.

Create the frog's legs by cutting two L-shaped pieces from the 8-inch square cake.

Use the 9-inch round cake for the frog's body, and place the L's on each side. The cupcakes go on top for the frog's eyes.

Colour most of the frosting green with food colouring. Make a little black frosting and keep some white for the eyes.

Frost the body and legs green. Frost the cupcake sides green and the middle of each cupcake white. Use an icing bag to pipe black frosting pupils in the middle of each white eye, as well as under the eyes for the frog's mouth. You can also make pupils with M&M's or gumdrops. Use your imagination!

Unwrap the fruit roll-up and place it under the mouth for the frog's tongue.
