These cupcakes are inspired by Disney's The Princess and The Frog.
My sister and I made these for a little girl's birthday. Her mom was our first client outside of our family. She had ordered Batman cupcakes for her son's birthday, so it isn very flattering that she requested for us to make something again.
She gave us the freedom to decorate with a lot of green for her theme as long as we stuck to certain flavors. She was blown away by our designs since she expected green liners and a a swirl of frosting with a Princess Tiana toothpick. She was glad her daughter would stand out as well because she was dressed as Princess Tiana.
The frogs were really easy. We cut a marshmallow in half and added black piping gel to dot the eyes and add a smile. The frogs were the main source of green for this theme.
The lily pads are made out of fondant. The flowers are made out of a flower mold press. The green pad was molded with the clean bottom of a soda can. It was then rounded out and a triangle slice was cut out. Some detail was added using a toothpick.
While we had green, we had to add some pink for a girl's birthday party! The yellow crowns are meant to look like the crown Tiana has at the beginning of the movie. These were also rolled out of fondant and cut out. My sister did an amazing job with all the fondant work right?
These looked great alternating on a cupcake rack. Unfortunately I do not have any pictures of that, but you get the idea from the first photo.
What do you think of the overall look? Let me know below and don't forget to like our Facebook page Pandycakes for more photos and updates.
We will be doing another order for a good bye party scheduled on Monday so I will share pictures as soon as I can!
