Best Frog Cake


  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1-1/4 cups sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 individual cream-filled sponge cakes


  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 milk chocolate M&M’s
  • Green paste or gel food coloring
  • Shoestring red licorice


  • In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with milk. Fill 12 greased muffin cups two-thirds full. Pour the remaining batter into a greased 9-in. round baking pan.
  • Bake cupcakes at 350Β° for 20-25 minutes and cake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool cupcakes for 5 minutes and cake for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire rack to cool completely.
  • To assemble, place the 9-in. cake in the center of a 15×13-in. covered board. Place two cupcakes above the cake for eyes. Arrange sponge cakes below the cake for legs. For feet, cut one cupcake in half using a zigzag cut. Place each half with a rounded edge touching a sponge cake. (Save remaining cupcakes for another use.)
  • For frosting, in a small saucepan, whisk flour and milk until smooth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Cool. In a small bowl, cream the butter, shortening, sugar and vanilla. Beat in milk mixture until smooth, about 4 minutes.
  • Use 1/3 cup white frosting to frost the bottom two-thirds of eyes; add M&M’s for pupils. Tint remaining frosting light green; spread over eyelids and over the top and sides of the rest of frog. Arrange one long licorice piece for the mouth. Place two 1-in. licorice pieces at the ends of the mouth.
