Today I’m showing you how to make a 3D Frog Cake! This adorable guy is modeled off of Newt from the game Best Fiends. Thanks so much to them for sponsoring this video!
I don’t often get sick, but when I do, I get SICK. Being a Kindergarten teacher, I have had my fair share of minor colds and coughs, but this year, a doozy of one hit my class, and inevitably, me. I ended up on pneumonia antibiotics and was given an inhaler to feel better, both of which worked and I am so happy to be back in the land of the vertical! While I was in bed, I had lots of time to plan ideas for future videos, so I have tons of ideas to turn into fabulous cakes and desserts! Just as soon as I stop coughing.
The idea for this Kermit the Frog cake came from my desire to use my giant cupcake mold, and the fact that the new Muppets movie is coming out at the end of the month! I’ve had a metal giant cupcake mold for years, but I recently got this new silicone one, and highly recommend it. When using the metal one, I would generously coat it with non-stick spray, and the top portion would always stick and never come out in one piece. I haven’t had this problem with the silicone mold once. Each time both pieces of the cupcake pop out easily. If you’ve ever had a cake stick to the pans and break when coming out, you know how annoying it can be.
Kermit takes a leading role for the new movie, Muppets Most Wanted, and according to the movie synapse, there is a Kermit the Frog look-alike and a jewel heist involved. It sounds like a great one to take the kids to and obviously if there are two Kermit’s, you must make a Kermit cake!
