"What a hit at my son's school on his birthday! For a person like me who isn't very artistic this cake was a breeze and delicious!!!..." See more"
"This was so great!! What are the chances I'd actually find a caterpillar cake when I looked for one. I used a bundt pan that had angular peaks in it (because that's all I had!) but it came out well!!..." See more I modeled mine after Eric Carle's "Very Hungry Caterpillar" and used it for my baby's 1st birthday."
"I used a different cake recipe, but I used the decorating idea for my boyfriend's birthday cake. (He's a kid at heart!) I actually based my caterpillar on the Eric Carle "The Very Hungry Caterpillar..." See more" and it was a big hit! I used spiral candles for antennae. Also, I used mini-Oreos coated in red icing as ladybugs. Very fun!"
