I am really enjoying the practice I'm getting with making cakes lately! This week I'm working on Ethan's birthday cake. Of course, he chose the most difficult cake I've ever made...a 3 tiered frog cake.
It's my fault. I found several frog cake ideas because he wanted a "Leap Frog" cake (which is NOT the popular item this year). I printed them out and asked him to pick one...never did I think he'd pick the "tallest mountain" (his words). So I'm experimenting with creating frogs, lily pads, cat tails, and rocks with a homemade modeling chocolate recipe I found.
It only took me about 1 1/2 hours to create the first 2 frogs but then I started getting a tad bit faster. :) Here are some of my creations so far.
Stayed tuned for the final creation...his birthday is Sunday, so it won't be long! :)
