A Very Hungry Caterpillar

I loved making this cute take on the Very Hungry Caterpillar book last week for Anoushka of Spitting Yarn to celebrate her little boy's 2nd birthday. I got the idea from Lyndsay Sung's awesome Coco Cupcake blog and added coordinating fruit cake pops inspired by all of the fruit that the caterpillar chomps his way through in the book.

Hopefully none of Spike's birthday party guests were very hungry after eating this lot. Happy birthday Spike!

He looks absolutely fantastic! In the early days of my blog I made one for someone but it was before I discovered gel food colouring or how to pipe properly so I'm bit embarrassed looking at it now!!

Thanks Sarah - I just found yours - he's cute! Satisfying to look back over posts and realised you've improved though isn't it? And tempting to remove some not so good pics (on mine) too but feels like it's best to keep it real and not edit in the world of blogging!

Hes so cute. Looks excatly like the book! If I ever have kids, they are getting one of these cakes! I also love how easy the cupcakes make dividing the cake evenly between children.

Wow - looks great! How did you get the icing to look like that? It looks amazing! (I mean the piping - not the colour!)
