Easy Kermit the Frog Cupcakes
Kermit would be proud of these gorgeous green frog cupcakes! Really easy to make, they look wonderful and taste even better.
Ingredients for Kermit the Frog Cupcakes
1 box cake mix
Ingredients for cake mix: butter, eggs
1 tub white frosting
48 white Mentos
24 yellow cupcake liners
Black food-safe marker
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare cupcakes according to directions on box. Insert cupcake liners inside muffin tin and fill ⅔ full with cupcake mix.
Bake for 20 minutes and cook until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. While cupcakes are baking, prepare your frosting.
Transfer white frosting from tub to small mixing bowl. To get the green pictured above, I used 25 drops of green food color and 10 drops of yellow food color. Mix well.
To prepare Kermit’s eyes, line up the Mentos and with the food-safe marker draw the eyes. Simply draw a line from one side of the Mentos to the other and draw and fill in an oval in the middle of the line.
Once cupcakes are done cooking, transfer to cooling rack and let cool for 15-20 minutes. Once the cupcakes are cool, top each cupcake with green frosting.
Place two Mentos on top of the frosting for the eyes.
