Any Muppets fans out there!? Well, my brother and I definitely are! So, of course, for his 23rd birthday, what could be more appropriate than a cake inspired by Kermit's beautiful song "Rainbow Connection"? This is a chocolate-coffee cake decorated with buttercream icing and peanut butter M&Ms. Everything is made from scratch (except for the M&Ms of course)!

Wow, you have some mad frosting skills.  That Kermit is awesome!  I also love the use of the M&Ms.  It makes for such a colorful cake.

Oh!  That song makes me teary-eyed every time I hear it (not in a sad way though, not sure why it has that effect on me).  Anyway, that is a brilliant idea for a cake, and I agree, your Kermit looks fantastic.  Great job!

    Thanks, guys! I actually used a toothpick dipped in the icing to "paint" Kermit and his banjo on there! It definitely took some time, but it was perfect for getting his thin arms and fingers on there.

    Haha! My brother started tearing up in the movie theater when we went to see the new Muppets Movie that came out in 2011 together, so you're not the only one!
