1 package of sugar cookie mix -- butter and egg as the recipe calls for
1 can of frosting
Green food coloring
Decorator sugars, yellow and pink
Plastic frogs -- as many as you need
1 package of fondant -- you won't use the whole thing so seal it tightly so that it can be used again!
I used one package of Betty Crocker cookie mix and I love this mix. It's the only packaged cookie product out there that comes thisclose to home made taste! I followed the directions on the package and then rolled the dough into a log and refrigerated over night.
The following morning I sliced the dough into fairly thin slices and placed them on to a cookie sheet. I baked them about 10 minutes at 350 and as soon as they came out of the oven and were still soft and warm I used my finger to indent the cookie to give it that lily pad look. I let the cookies cool and harden,
While the cookies are cooling you'll make the flowers. I cut off pieces of fondant and rolled them out flat, then used a small flower cookie cutter to cut out my flowers. Some of the flowers remained white, some were pink and some were yellow. To color the flowers I used colored sugars. In order to get the sugar to adhere to the fondant I dipped a pastry brush lightly in water and to get the fondant damp. I then pressed the flower in to the sugar and the sugar stuck beautifully. I set the flowers aside. To make the petals curl up I gently pressed my finger into the middle of the cookie and worked the petals ever so gently.
When the cookies had cooled I frosted them. I used a canned frosting (vanilla) and added some green food coloring to it. I didn't use that much of the frosting as the cookies required just one thin layer. When all the cookies were frosted I took a flower which I placed strategically on the cookie. Lastly the frogs were added. I kept the cookies aside and let the frosting harden overnight.
