The Very Hungry Caterpillar Cake


The adorable Miss Emmi turned 1 just a few days after Tater. Emmi loves the Very Hungry Caterpillar more that I have ever seen a kid love a book, it’s quite adorable. She’s that bugs #1 fan. So of course, her party had to follow suit. Tater and I spent Saturday afternoon hagnin’ out with Emmi and her fabulous mother and we made a cake.

First, I made a 20 inch 2 layer strawberry cake


The we covered it in cream cheese frosting and then a layer of white fondant and put brightly colored gumballs at the bottom


We then cut out three inch circles from another sheet cake, cutting off the rounded top and cut those circles in half


We frosted those half circles and then covered them in different shades of green fondant


We covered one of the cake circles in red fondant to use as the head


On went the body


Although Miss Emmi’s house is filled with every baby toy imaginable, the ladies spent most of the day playing on the stairs


Emmi’s mom was a quick study with the fondant and was able to make her name, Caterpillar legs, antennae and eyes as well as an adorable sun


And check out that mini smash cake, made by Emmi’s aunt. Very adorable!

Happy first year Emmi!

I love this cake! The Very Hungry Caterpillar was one of my favorite books and I still have it on my shelves. I have to make this for my nieces or maybe just for me. Thanks!
