FROGGY CUPCAKES FOR KIDS

Me and my daughter Brielle made these FROGGY CUPCAKES over the weekend. The recipe is very easy to do and the kids will have fun making these FROGGY CUPCAKES. CAKE ANATOMY:
INGREDIENTS:
12 cupcakes baked in green paper liners
1 can (16 oz) vanilla frosting
Green food coloring
3 strands red licorice laces
1 roll Fruit by the Foot red fruit leather
48 brown M&M's
24 spearmint leaves
1 tube (4.25 oz) black decorating icing
½ cup green decorating sugar
24 green gummy apple rings
WHAT YOU'LL NEDD:
A resealable sandwich-size plastic bag
TO PREPARE THE CANDY:
1.) Cut the red licorice laces into 24 (3-inch) pieces.
2.) Cut the red Fruit by the Foot into 24 (1 ½-inch) ovals.
3.) Cut the green gummy apple rings in half.
4.) Place a spearmint leaf, flat side down on work surface. Cut the spearmint leaf in half horizontally to make the frog feet. Repeat with the remaining candies.
FROSTING THE CUPCAKES:
1.) Spoon ¼ cup of the vanilla frosting into a resealable plastic bag.
2.) Tint the remaining vanilla frosting green with the food coloring.
3.) Spread the top of each cupcake with some of the green frosting.
4.) Roll the edge of each frosted cupcake in the green sugar to coat.
TO COMPLETE THE DECORATION:
1.) Arrange 2 cut gummy rings in the center of the cupcake, cut side down, as pictured.
2.) Snip a small corner from the bag with the vanilla frosting and pipe a dot of vanilla frosting in the center of each ring.
3.) Press a brown candy into the vanilla frosting as the pupils. Pipe white dots on the brown candies to add sparkle to the frog's eye.
4.) Press a length of red licorice lace onto the cupcake for the frog's mouth. Add the red fruit leather oval as the tongue.
5.) Arrange the cut spearmint leaves at the base of the cupcakes for the frog's feet. Repeat with the remaining cupcakes.
HAVE FUN MAKING THE FROGGY CUPCAKES!!!
HAVE A HAPPY FROGGY SPRING DAY!!!

  20. It appears much more and much more, older males from the late 20s for the mid 40s are obtaining
    involved with ladies starting from 16-20. Just inside a common social
    observation, both the women and males appear to want these types of associations, and it usually finishes within a quick time and is emotionally harming.

  21. Boakyewa,
    This is actually a really interesting topic you acquired going
    on right here. Today is your lucky day cos I'm living proof that it really is completely possible to meet your future adore on a networking or social networking internet site. I met my now Wife on a social media internet site (Not FB) but similar. I't was pure coincidence because I had been not on that internet site to locate enjoy
    in the 1st location.
    Basically I found some from the items she wrote
    about herself very intriguing and interesting thus wanted
    to understand much more. I commented on her bio no
    motive in mind than to understand far more about her hobby (studying
    people) which coincidentally is one of the factors I prefer to do in my own free time .
    We did plenty of inboxing' back and forth for over three months and in those three months we never ever spoke on the phone. (individually I used to be not so keen on talking with her around the phone).
    Fast forward a number of months... It so happened which i was in her city for some organization and that i had commented on my page on how horrible that city was oops! Well she inbox me letting me know how offended she was cos I had been talking about her city (experienced no thought). She was so bent on proving to me how fantastic her city was that she offered to show me several exciting places within the city. Wow! how bold... Not so keen on this I countered her provide by suggesting a quick lunch in any area of her choice (she experienced to prove me wrong). We met and to say the minimum the chemistry was instant... Lunch went by so fast... experienced to leave back to the hotel for a meeting so we exchanged numbers and the remainder is history.
    Still happily married with one particular lovely daughter (a year old).
    So all I've to say is the fact that really like has
    no strategy... It just hits you when you least expect and of course it can happen on fb too .

  23. Seriously? He queries the value of college. I used to be paraphrasing you dong.
    . "we should ask ourselves whether skills nonetheless hold the same value now as they did in prior years".
    Fuck yeah they do. The qualification exhibits that you know how to complete anything.
    How? did you find out that? Via school/higher learning.

    . College provides the education that tends to make best class authors/scientists/doctors/whatever.
    You cannot just become "educated". You have to be educated by way
    of indicates including college.
