Looks sure can be deceiving — just ask a certain monarch who hails from the land of Maldonia. Like Naveen, this little frog may not be suited in shining armor. Still, perched atop a cupcake throne and sporting a candy crown, he truly is a sweet 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 fruit chew candies
Stir drops of food coloring into the frosting until you have the desired shade of green.
Spread a dollop of frosting on the center of each cupcake.
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.
For the frog’s crown, cut two small V-shaped notches in the top of a yellow fruit chew 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.
