The family that ordered this cake have a knack for coming up with themes that get me so excited. A hungry caterpillar first birthday cake, why yes, yes indeed. I fondly recall loving that book, so very much! I may have used this cake as an excuse to buy a copy.. for research purposes of course.
It wasn’t a huge gathering so we have a 6 inch chocolate cake jam packed full of chocolate buttercream. The fondant provided a clean white base to add some of the fruits from the story. Two pears, four strawberries, five oranges, all with the little bite holes in them and topped off with the famous caterpillar on the top of the cake.
The cake was accompanied with a dozen cupcakes… Vegan, vanilla cupcakes, each topped with a fondant leaf.
Happy Birthday Piper!
