A Caterpillar Cake For Christian
Christian and his Caterpillar Cake
I try to make birthdays special in our house. This caterpillar cake for my son Christian was one of my more recent concoctions.
I followed the general directions from Kraft and I thought it turned out pretty well. Instructions:
This caterpillar cake was made using a round bundt or angel food pan that has that hollow center. You can really use any traditional cake mix, boxed or homemade, that you prefer. We all love chocolate, so I made a chocolate mix.
After the cake has cooled, you simply cut the cake in half. Then cut one of the halves in half again. Use the large piece for the middle hump portion of the cake and the two smaller pieces for either end.
Decorate the cake with your choice of icing and then create the details of the caterpillar using melted chocolate for the stripes, round fruit snacks for the eyes and spots, and chocolate licorice and mini-marshmallows for the legs and antennae.
Christian loved his caterpillar cake and so did his 7 brothers and sisters. Give it a try. It's not as hard as it might look.
