Lucky Leap Frog Cake

Rated 4 out of 5 by BrendaBear from I made this for my mom and her 5th grade class for her birthday since she has a frog theme in her classroom. The only difficulty I had was keeping the arms from falling down. I may not have used a heavy enough cake and the frosting was not stiff enough so it didn't stick well. Overall it was a great success and I will most likely be making it again this year for her, though she won't be nearly as surprised this year!

Rated 3 out of 5 by jeanniewynn from The cuddly bear cake pan leaked. I had to make this cake twice. The arms did not stay up when I put the icing on. That said, I used tin foil to stop leaks and I made up my own arms that just went straight down in front of the frog and it looked pretty cute. The lily pad was easy and the cake for the base was easy and pretty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GBcakebakingmom from The teddy bear pan is so versitile and really works well for this cake. I just used buttercream frosting to draw the lilypad on the top of the cake and to make flowers and grass and it turned out just as nicely. Building up the face can be done in layers and given a few minutes to dry so the weight doesn't overwhelm the cake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by momof2 from I made this cake for my son's first birthday. Everyone loved it and couldn't believe that I made it. A big hit and wasn't as hard as I first thought it would be. The directions were very clear also and easy to follow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by red48030 from I did this frog for my Daughter who was graduating from high school. I made it on the lily pad, put on a scroll and a grad cap made tassle to match her school colors. The whole family loved it. And I had fun making it

Rated 5 out of 5 by cheryl_gregory from I made this for my daughter when she was going through her frog phase. She loved it. It wasn't too difficult. But you need a firm cake, such as a pound cake so the frog doesn't fall apart.

Rated 3 out of 5 by whosyourgrammy from This idea was a challenge. I underestimated the time it would take to finish. The first time was not good...the second time I tried it was much better. I can't wait to try it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by catbien from My daughter loves frogs and I made this one for her. I was easy to make and a huge hit at her Party. Once you have the star technique down pat, this is a very easy cake to decorate.
