Frogs in Pond

A friend of mine, S kindly asked me to cater her son's 2nd birthday. Her son Thomas is really into frogs so she sent me a link to some other Frog cupcakes that she found online. I thought it might be a little more interesting to create a theme around that, so I added the pond, grass and flowers.

I thought of using blue food gel on top of the cupcakes for the water feature but I decided not to in the end as I didn't think it would look quite as attractive as the other cupcakes. I think each cupcake should try to look as attractive as it's neighbour so they all have an equal chance of getting picked and eaten! LOL. So just did a zigzag swirl with the Wilton 1M tip. The gel option would be great for a cake though.

I tried out the frogs first and made this batch. I used choc chips first for the eyes but found they were too small and didn't add that cuteness to the frogs.

Here is the final product. I wrapped a cake stand with green crepe paper but this crepe paper is the stiffest crepe paper that I have ever seen! It just would not mould to the stand! It made me so mad. I just hoped people wouldn't focus on it. ; )

Here is a close up of the frogs with M&M's for eyes. Cuter, huh?

I created a variety of flowers. There were little rosettes, frangipanies, chrysanthemums and roses.

There were lots of kids and adults with green lips at the end of the day.
