I’ve got some baking to finish up this evening and lots of little bits and pieces to make for cakes this weekend, but since I haven’t shared a cake in a few days… I just had to get this Hungry Caterpillar Cake posted to share with you!
Before I get started, I should also tell you that I was inspired by many cakes online for this one. There are several similar cakes on Google images, so I sort of took hints from several of them!
Many of you probably remember this cake from several weeks ago when I asked your opinion about which background was better…. remember this post on Facebook?
Speaking of Facebook, if you aren’t a fan of my page… please hop over and like it! I often share cakes and pics there that I don’t have time to share here along with just having fun interacting with you guys and gals on an almost daily basis!
Anyway, so here are a few pics of different parts of the cake…
The top of the cake – the sun – was made with the Wilton Sports Ball Pan set (half of it anyway). For the rays, I mixed Tylose into marshmallow fondant and then cut them and let them dry for a couple of days. They were almost 2 inches longer than what you see so that i could really anchor them in the cake!
And here are some pics of the sides and back of the cake…along with some close-ups! I tried to get several of the main components from The Very Hungry Caterpillar book onto the cake!
The borders were made with gumballs… sour ones if I remember correctly! Oh.. and there was a smash cake:
It was simple but I really wanted to capture the same amount of fun as on the big cake!
And that’s it! I know I haven’t shared as many details as I usually do… but I must get back to work!
Do you have any questions about this cake? Please leave them in the comments and I’ll do my best to answer and help out!
