We love an out of the ordinary day at our house and a Leap Day is perfect!
As much as I want to make a 30 Rock Leap Day party at work I knew the little one (Eli-7) would't understand so we made Leap Frog Cupcakes! :)
Eli and I just thought these up, so they aren't perfect!
Here's what you'll need:
1. cake mix (haha or if you're brave you can make them from scratch)
2. greeeeeen food dye
3. marshmallows for frog eyes
4. green cupcake holders
5. green and red paper
6. tooth picks
7. hot glue gun
While the cupcakes were baking Eli and I took the green paper and cut it into strips - we took two and make paper like accordions by folding them over each - Start with an L and fold one strip over the other.
Then we cut thinner red strips and Eli wrapped them around a thin paint brush to curl them and make frog tongues! We also cut out little frog feet with the extra green paper! We hot glued the red tongues to tooth picks so they could stay in place! And we used normal tacky glue to stick the legs on!
We dyed the frosting green (2 shades) and we used marshmallows for the eyes then made a tiny bit of black frosting for pupils! :)
Tada!! Eli picked a special one out for his teacher!
Happy Leap Day everyone!Pin It
