Hello everyone and Welcome to……..
Day 10: Ten Lords a Leaping of the
Twelve Days of Christmas. Last year when I was thinking about this, the first thing that popped into my head was Frog Princes. I have a big 'ol ceramic frog....and I call him my frog prince. And he is so cute. And since then I have gotten two more smaller ones. I just love them! Anyway after thinking about this I got on the internet to see about doing a frog cupcake. And I finally found the one I liked. .
I took that idea and ran with it my way. And here HE is:
One of the Lords a Leaping
MY FROG PRINCE
MY FROG PRINCE
Prince Naveen Frog Face Cupcakes
- Batch of baked cupcakes
- Wooden spoon
- Green food coloring
- Buttercream frosting
- Butter knife
- Green jelly fruit slices
- Large green gumdrops
- Kitchen scissors
- Mini marshmallows
- Chocolate chips
- Small kitchen knife
- Yellow Starburst candies
Instructions:1. Stir drops of food coloring into the frosting until you have the desired shade of green.
2. Spread a dollop of frosting on the center of each cupcake.
3. To create each frog, press a jelly fruit slice down into the frosting. For eyes, slice a gumdrop in half. Then snip a mini marshmallow in two and press the halves against the cut surfaces of the gumdrop. Press a chocolate chip into the center of each marshmallow half. Place the eyes on the cupcake just behind the jelly fruit slice.
|4. For the frog's crown, cut two small V-shaped notches in the top of a yellow Starburst candy (a parent's job). Use your fingers to curl the outer points outward a bit. Insert the tip of a toothpick into the bottom of the candy crown and then push the opposite end down into the cupcake behind the frog's eyes.|

As you can see Prince Naveen is really cute and easy SO I just decide to add a little g l a m to him.
My Frog Prince......
You bake the cupcake in a GREEN FOIL cupcake liner. When cool frost him with bright green icing. IF you can find a Green jelly fruit slice locally then more power to you. I went to a trillion places from here to Texas. They are at some specialty candy stores but not alot. But just to find them locally well......there weren't any. So I ended up using green jelly fruit slices from a plastic carton holding many colors and flavors. (Walmart/$2.50). I then rolled out the slice and cut it into the big smile and with white icing 'piped' a smile on it. As you can see my smile has a break or two so when piping it use a steady hand. The eyes were done the same as the description by Disney. And the crown is made up also of yellow starbursts BUT I brushed on some edible Pearlized GOLD Dust (from cake decorating specialty store) and then put GOLD DRAGEES on the points. I made a cute 'Royal' bow out of gold metallic ribbon and 'pinned' it under his chin. Then I opened up and flattened a GOLD FOIL cupcake liner and set him on the 'outside' of it. The 'inside' is facing down. I felt this made him very Regal and Handsome as I wanted my LORDS A LEAPING to be. And isn't he just the CUTEST cupcake!! And the kids LOVE him. And the kid in all adults will love him too. They are just too hard to resist.
So here are the TEN LORDS A LEAPING
