From Lily Pad to Happy Little Frog Cake
Fondant covered cake board and green fondant lily pad. The bits of waxed paper give the lilly pad an added dimension when dry.
Frog Queen – the beginning. She is filled, carved and frosted with merangue butter-cream.
Next, she is covered with fondant. Her arms are shaped from fondant as well and crossed delicately in front.
Next I added her feet, eyes and nostrils.
…followed by her pupils, cheeks and big smile.
Here legs, cheeks and, of course, her crown are then added. I made the crown ahead of time so that it could dry throroughly (at least one day).
Finaly, I painted her with a combination of food colors and luster dust (available in most cake supply stores) mixed with pure lemon extract and added the little lillies.
