Last weekend I worked on one of my last cakes. As much as I love creating these dimensional cakes, they are very time consuming. I am one busy chick, and I'm trying to change that. I still have a few more cakes coming up over the next few months, but it won't be as many as you've seen lately.
This is the frog from Disney's Princess and the Frog. The most challenging part of this cake was getting the fondant to wrap around the pieces. The fondant batch was very soft and would tear easily. I made mini cupcakes for lily pads, plus I wanted to make sure they didn't run out of cake for their guests.
I started out with two domed-shaped cakes and the rectangular cake. Fortunately, the round cakes baked quite tall. I was able to use the halves separately instead of joining them together; one for the head and one for the body.
Head and body
The arms and legs were tricky. The character has very thin arms and legs but I wanted the cake to have some volume.
The frog wrapped in fondant. I thought the final product looked more like a ninja turtle. Jokingly, my friend said why is that cat green?
