My daughter's first grade class just finished a unit on the rainforest and as a fundraiser to buy 2 acres of rainforest land, the class decided to hold a bake sale. These frogs were perfect and my daughter was so proud!
Instead of sprinkling green sugar on top of the frosting, I tinted the frosting a deeper shade of green because I thought sugar on top of sugar would be a little much. I used most of an entire bottle of green food coloring. The cut of the marshmallow is crucial! Like the other user, my marshmallows kept sliding off, so I switched the direction of the cut and no longer had a problem. (It's much easier to cut the marshmallows with scissors instead of a knife.) I used red decorator gel instead of tinting the leftover frosting pink/red. The most time consuming part of the decorating is "glueing" on the chocolate chips; I used a toothpick and put the frosting right on the chip. I baked the cupcakes the day before and it took me nearly an hour and a half just to decorate them, so while they're really cute, I wouldn't make them just to make them.
