frog cupcake ideas

I love being able to involve my boys when we make desserts and treats for them. It’s fun to do it all together and to see them excited about creating something. I’m by no means amazing at baking or cooking, but I love to do things for them and with them. We made these fun Frog Cupcakes for a play date we had the other day. They are easy enough that your child can help you with them and turned out pretty cute!

      Thanks! The fun part was showing the boys how to do them and then watching them frost and decorate. Pretty simple and they loved doing it. 🙂
