Frog Cupcakes

Frog Cupcakes


  • Your favorite cupcake recipe
  • White frosting
  • String licorice (any flavor)
  • Gumdrops
  • Green food coloring
  • Mini M&Ms (brown ones)
  • Gummy Worms (optional)

Prepare and bake cupcakes according to recipe. While cupcakes are cooling, add green food coloring to frosting for the green color and then frost cupcakes. Cut gumdrops in half and place on top of cupcake for the eyes. Push a mini M&M into cupcake slightly right in front of the gumdrops for the pupils of the eyes. Cut string licorice into 4 inch pieces and create a frog mouth on the edge of the cupcake. The last option is to cut gummy worms in half and push the end of the worm into the cupcake near the mouth.
