Prince Naveen Frog Face Cupcakes (Decorating Idea)

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. -Cindy Littlefield (family.go.com)

My DD, Kristina, followed this idea for decorating the cupcakes for Vincent's 3rd birthday, which we celebrated last week. The photo above is the one featured on the website; however, here is a photo of the cupcakes Kristina decorated for Vincent's party, which was overrun with frogs: frog streamers, frog balloon, frog pinata (made by Kristina & Sonya), frog tableware, frog cupcakes .... -LuAnn

Ingredients:
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 Starburst candies
Toothpicks
Instructions:
1. Stir drops of food coloring into the frosting until you have the desired shade of green.

2. Spread a dollop of frosting on the center of each cupcake.

3. 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.

4. For the frog's crown, cut two small V-shaped notches in the top of a yellow Starburst 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.
