Hi Friends! I’m excited to share with you all the details of how I made Easton’s toad cake. I used a similar method for making this cake as I did for Sawyer’s Pikachu cake. This cake was also sculpted from a giant cupcake pan. This time I also baked the leftover batter in this poop emoji pan and made some fun Goombas!
Step 1: Start with a Giant Cupcake Pan
Similarly to Sawyer’s DIY Pikachu Cake, I started by baking this cake recipe in a giant cupcake pan. The pan I have is from Williams-Sonoma but I don’t think they carry it anymore. I found a very similar one here.
Step 2: Carve Cake and Frost the Bottom
After I baked the cake and allowed it to cool completely (at least 2 hours), it was time to start carving it into the shape of Toad. I started with the top portion and removed the tip of the cupcake. Then, I rounded the top into more of a dome shape. Next, I shaved off the sides of the base until it looked more proportionally like Toad. After the shape was established, I removed the top and set it aside. I then mixed the buttercream frosting and divided it into two bowls. I colored one bowl with Copper gel-based food coloring and the second bowl with Kelly Green. Once the buttercream was ready, I frosted the entire top and base of the Toad cake with the copped colored icing.
Step 3: Assemble and Frost the Top
Next, I placed the top of the cake on top of the base and frosted it with the Kelly Green colored icing.
Step 4: Add the Fondant Spots
Now it’s time to add the spots! I rolled Wilton Decorator Preferred White Fondant into a thin layer on parchment paper. Then I used a circle cookie cutter and cut out 5 white fondant circles and placed them on the Toad cake.
Step 5: Add the Eyes
The final step was creating the eyes! To do this, I rolled black modeling chocolate into an oval shape and added a white center to the eye with white fondant. Then I placed the eyes on the base of the Toad cake to bring him to life. Done! How cute!
