This weekend I created a cake for a very good friend of mine. It was her son's first birthday! When she told me she wanted to do The Very Hungry Caterpillar, by Eric Carle, my head was already swirling with ideas. I have been wanting to do this themed cake for awhile. Not just because it is so cute, but it has always been a childhood favorite of mine too ;-) After scouring pinterest and the internet for ideas, I came up with this version. I love the part when the caterpillar eats all the different foods and used that to design the cake board. The caterpillar and butterfly were molded with fondant.
