Kermit Cake

Today I want to share a Kermit the Frog Cake with you!

When Melanie first asked me to do a Kermit the Frog cake, I hesitated because when a character is as popular as Kermit – you really don’t want to screw it up!

But after doing a little research and studying the actual shape of Kermit – I determined he probably wouldn’t be too hard.  I found this cake on that Melanie liked, and then simplified it somewhat.

Kermit the Frog Cake Topper

Sebastian really just wanted Kermit and she didn’t mind that I didn’t add on all the other characters and details… he just really loves Kermit!

I made him from 50/50 mix of gum paste and homemade marshmallow fondant.  I really needed him to dry and harden, but not so fast that I couldn’t get his shape and details right.  I used Americolor Leaf Green for the color!

I made the balloons using the same technique as I use to put stars on wires (tutorial here).

Kermit the Frog Cake

Since I’ve really only done Superman cakes with the “exploding out of a cake” look… it was fun to do Kermit popping out of a cake!  You can see my tutorials here:  Exploding Cake Tutorial Part 1 and Exploding Cake tutorial part 2.

For the border on this cake, it was done with a pearl mold… easy-peasy and one of my best investments ever!!

Kermit the Frog Cake Name

The lettering on this cake was done with the Fox Run Alphabet cutters.  They’re also really easy to use, a great size and very versatile (while not all that fancy!).  In other words, they’re great for boy cakes where I can’t use the really frilly “pretty” letters or also for more serious cakes that don’t need fancy or fussy letters!

Kermit the Frog Birthday Cake

This was an 8″ round chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream filling and frosting.  All of the decorations were homemade marshmallow fondant except for the red – it was Satin Ice Red Vanilla fondant.

So… do I have any Muppets fans out there?  I never really got into the Muppets, although they are awfully cute!  

Do you have any thoughts or questions about this cake?  Leave them in the comments and I’ll do my best to answer and help out!

    Turned out great Rose!!! Love the colors of the balloons!!!
    Kermy came out great!!!
    Isn’t it weird when a customer asks you to do a character and your like {scratching your head} how the heck am i going to do this????? hahahaha. But once you do the research and do the homework, it’s not has bad as you think. We tend to psych ourselves out over something we think is hard but then when your done, you say to yourself….”that wasn’t bad as I thought it was!!!” hahahaaha!!!

    Great job Rose,…..Great job!!!!!

    Love this cake, but not a fan of the Muppets. Could you make one with a little Johnny Depp popping out of it? haha.
