Frog in chocolate pond


I baked this cake in 2014. Although I had noted down the invitation to the birthday party in my calendar a few weeks beforehand, I decided 2 days before the party that bringing a cake as a present would be a great idea. The hostess loves frogs and so I thought that if my first frog turned out I’d bake the cake around him afterwards. I dyed my modelling fondant green and using a tutorial from the absolutely brilliant and talented Ewa – check out her YouTube channel “Let’s clay with Ewa”,, I modelled my first frog. Such a cute guy! I cut the heart out of pink modelling chocolate.

The cake was a chocolate cake with a quark and mixed berry filling. I covered the cake with dark chocolate ganache and garnished the entire cake with sponge fingers.
