I don't recall where I got this from, but they are quick and easy and the kids think they are super cool.

Absolutely the cutest things. I made them for a co-worker's birthday and even the men in the office seemed to find them inviting! I used recipe#87205 for the cup cakes and recipe#89207 for the icing. I ran out of green gum drops so I also used orange gum drops, so they looked like tree frogs! Thank you for one of the most fun birthday goodies I have made.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 24 cupcakes, cooked and prepared for frosting
  • 2 cups green frosting
  • 24 gumdrops, green
  • 48 white chocolate chips
  • black decorating gel


  1. Ice cupcakes with green frosting.
  2. Slice gumdrops in half (Note: If you have a Lammes Candies around you, they also have these green sours you can buy in bulk that work if you cannot find gumdrops).
  3. Push one white chocolate chip piece into the bottom edge of the sticky part of the gumdrop, you want the point of the chip to stick in there.
  4. Place gumdrops on cupcake like the frog's eyes and use the black icing to make a dot for the pupil.
  5. Note: You can also use blue frosting and have it look like the frog is coming out of the water.
