Easy Frog Lily Pad Cupcakes

We created these Frog Lily Pad Cupcakes & they are so easy to make! My boys thought these were so cute.

Easy Frog Lily Pad Cupcakes

Cupcakes (any flavor)
Blue Raspberry Frosting (Pillsbury)
Green Gumballs (Sweetworks)
Pretzel Sticks
Tootsie Rolls
Marshmallow Bits
Red Cookie Icing
Rips Candy Strips
Black Edible Marker

Make any cupcakes & frost them with the pre-made blue frosting. Cut 2 Rips candy strips in the shape of a lily pad using kitchen scissors & place it on top. Poke a hole in the top & bottom of one green gumball using a knife. Then poke a toothpick in it. Poke another hole in one side of another gumball & attach the gumballs together. Poke the gumballs down into the cupcakes in the middle of the candy lily pad. Press your black edible marker in the middle of 2 marshmallow bits to make eyes & then attach on the top with cookie icing. We also put 2 dots on with the edible marker for the nose. We put a Tootsie Roll in the microwave for 8 seconds & pinched off 2 pieces to wrap around the tops of 2 pretzel sticks. Poke them in the cupcake on the back side. We tinted some of the blue frosting green & piped on the legs using a baggie.
