My friend's twins are celebrating their 2nd birthday, and when I found out she was having a 'Very Hungry Caterpillar' party, I begged her to let me make the cake. I LOVE the hungry caterpillar and kicked myself for not thinking of using it for a theme for one of my kiddies parties when they were younger, so I was delighted when this opportunity presented itself.
I decided to use only white fondant and then hand paint it to get it as close to Eric Carle's artwork as possible. I had so much fun making this cake!
The cake itself was rich dark chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream icing, my favourite!
