Piece de Resistance

So it's not a masterpiece, and definitely not my best work, but to cap off our animal week we made this caterpillar cake. Thank you to my sweet sister Leisa for this fun cake pan! This is one of those projects that I'm excited to try but once I start, I get discouraged because it's not turning out the way I expected and when I'm halfway through I don't care how it looks anymore I just want it to be done. Thankfully for me, I have small children who clap their hands and say "good job Mom!!' when I'm finished. :)

A perfect book to go along with this cake is "The Hungry Caterpillar" but sadly, we don't have it. So we are reading a cute book called "You're My Little Love Bug"

I hope you enjoyed animal week. Next week we'll start celebrating St. Patricks Day!


  1. I love it Kathy! You did a great job! I once made a caterpillar cake for Dylan's 1st was actually cupcakes lined up to be a caterpillar. Yours is sooo much cuter!!

  2. It's very cute and creative. You can also use twinkies and cupcakes to make the same type of shape if you don't have a caterpillar cake pan.

  3. I think you did a great job! I'm sorry it didn't turn out like you wanted. I'm sure the frosting was the biggest hassle. Hopefully it tasted good and was worth the effort.
