Kiss Me, I’m a Prince!

I don’t know why but I think frogs with little crown are so cute. I have seen several in the scrapbook isles and a few have made me laugh out loud! The only thing that stopped me from making one was finding the cutter. I finally found one this week! A cute little cutter of a frog with a little crown! I threw it in my basket and and started thinking about how I was going to decorate it.

Well, what do you think? I think I would kiss this guy! But guess what? I didn’t use the cutter I bought! I will show you how I did it in a minute.

Supplies:

Green Twenty Second Icing (by SweetSugarBelle)

Black Icing or Black Food Marker

Red Twenty Second Icing (by SweetSugarBelle)

White Outline Icing

Yellow Twenty Second Icing (by SweetSugarBelle)

One the way home from the cake supply store I realized I could have saved $1.29 making one myself. If you have a frog cutter I am almost positive you will be able to add the crown with something you have on hand.

Do you have a mini angel cutter? Or a mini star cutter? How about a mini snowflake cutter? If you said yes, you can make this cookie!

Here they are! All different but you will get the same results. Who knew???

I like the shape of the mini snowflake the best so that is what I will show you today but the angel and star would work exactly like this.

First thing to do is cut the frog and a snowflake.

Next, to make sure the frog’s crown will fit him, place the frog cutter on the snowflake where you want it. Cut it to get the perfect shape for the head.

It is time to bake!

Now that you have your frog with the crown it is time to decorate. With your green icing, outline your prince.

Next, with the green icing, flood the head and the legs. Let this dry for about 20 minutes.

Then, with the green icing, flood his tummy.

With the yellow icing, make the dots for the top of the crown. Let this dry for about 20 more minutes.

Then, with the yellow icing, finish the crown.

With the white outline icing, make 2 large eyes! He wants to see how beautiful you are;) While the white is wet you can add the black dot. This is the only black you need for this project. So if you don’t want to mix black icing, you can use a food safe marker but you need to let the white dry completely before you make the dot.

Next, with the green icing make him some lips by piping a line from cheek to cheek.

Now it is time for the heart. I made two red dots.

Then, I stuck the tip into one dot while dragging in a downward “v” motion. Do the same to the other dot and you will have a nice heart. Let this dry for a few hours. The heart needs to be pretty dry so you can add the hands.

Now for the hands. I made 3 dots on each side of the heart. These will be the fingers or whatever frogs have.

Then, make a curvy line for each arm a little thicker than his lips.

Next, attach the dot fingers to the thick curvy arm. Now you have cute little frog arms and hands hold your heart! You are all done!

I liked this picture because it shows me I don’t have to spend $1.29 for “the” cutter I think I need! I might have to give it away because I like the snowflake frog much better. He has a nice shape and I don’t have to make his hands by his feet.

 

I want you to meet my prince. His name is Alan and we have been married for 25 years! I can’t believe I am that old!!! Anyhow, I hope we will be together until we “croak” at a very old age! (Sorry, I couldn’t stop myself!)

Happy Creating,

Signature

  6. thank you! I too have wanted a frog with a crown cookie cutter, didn’t even think to use my little ones with my frog. LOVE IT!

    You don’t know this but I had a frog prince and princess on my wedding cake, and my anniversary is next weekend, so how fun would these be to make for it! I think I might make princesses too =D

    • I am so glad you like it Deniece! I hope you make it for this weekend. If you do I would love to see pictures of the Prince and Princess!

  7. So adorable! Love the tutorial :)
    Thanks Lisa!

  8. What a wonderful combining of cutters! I love the little crowns and I think you’re right that the frog works much better with his hands up holding the heart!
    Awesome job!

  9. I’m sure Alan is loving all these comments saying how cute & adorable he is… or were they taking about the frog prince cookie? ;)

    Miss you both!

  10. The frog is simply adorable. I wish you and your prince charming will grow old together. Stay happy and healthy always!!

  11. You are so talented and amazing!

  12. What an adorable frog prince!

  13. wow – these are so cute – your icing is so smooth and shiny, just looks great! I am amazed at what you can put together w/ cookies cutters and not have it break apart. My dough doesn’t seem right…I need to work on that. Sooooo when are you hosting a class so I can get some one on one training! HA!

  14. I love how shiny and smooth your icing is, perfection. Gorgeous Cookies!

    You make such an adorable couple!

  15. Hi, your cookies are so ADORABLE!!
    I have a question: Do you use corn syrup in your icing? They look so shine!
    In my country corn syrup does not easy to get, can I use anything to add the shine?
    Thank you so much!!

  16. Me encanta!!!

  17. Adorable! That is quite possibly the cutest frog I’ve ever seen. Thanks so much for the tutorial. The heart technique alone is pure gold. I’m so glad I found your site – I feel like I’m in school (fab cookie school)! Kristina

    Hi there, your cookies look fantastic and this is exactly what I am looking for. I kind of thought about this and then assumed that the crown and frog wouldn’t attach very well and might snap off. Do you find that the attached pieces merged a little during baking to make them strong enough? I have tried making royal icing transfers (which all took ages to dry and broke!), I have tried handcutting smaller frogs using a template from a kids’ book traced on to baking paper but it’s fiddly and I need to cut about 20 so also very time consuming! Thanks

    • I piece cookies together all the time and I don’t have problems. I even ship them and they have not been broken. I hope you try this method. It is much easier than RI transfers.

      • mylittlemod says:

        Thanks for your quick reply!! I will give this method a go. I’ve got a small flower cutter similar to your snowflake that will give me a three prong tiara!

  19. You are so darned clever. I hope that I can implement some of your clever ideas and maybe even eventually brainstorm a few of my own! I’m up in Cape Breton and ordering cookie cutters and supplies gets pretty expensive with the added postage.

    These are adorable. I just want to thank you for taking the time to actually do a step by step tutorial with such each to follow pictures. (This is by far the best site I’ve been on so far.) I’m just learning and it’s so very helpful. I only hope I can one day make them as good as you. Today, mine are more blobs. But practice, practice, practice. :) Many thanks again for such a great little site.

  21. Love ‘em, love ‘em, love ‘em! I have such a soft spot for cookie cutter combo’s that save you from buying more! :)
