This past May was my baby girl's first birthday, and we had a small celebration with the grandparents and immediate family members, and the theme was based on Eric Carle's book, "The Very Hungry Caterpillar." I love baking (be it from scratch or the box haha), and wanted to make a caterpillar cake, so I began a search and was inspired by Coco Cake Cupcakes out in Vancouver. Now I don't think mine is anywhere near as cool as their hungry caterpillar cake, but I tried!
Here are some photos of my rendition:
So I was a bit pressed for time so I ended up using the box mix (in chocolate) and cream cheese frosting. I got food coloring for the green frosting from Michael's and was lucky enough to find ready made fondant in red there as well. I used licorice for the legs and nose. Looking forward to next year and this time I hope to make the cake from SCRATCH!
