It was my godson's second birthday this week and I was asked to make his cake. Last year he got a 3D teddy bear cake (he was named Henry and we felt very bad about cutting into him when the time came, sorry little guy!). So this year I turned to my good friend, Google image search to find inspiration for his cake. He is a big fan of the Very Hungry Caterpillar book so it was my first search, and after scrolling for pages and pages I finally found one that would fit the bill.
The actual cake is pretty straight forward: 2 tiers (any kind of cake you want, this one was red velvet and vanilla with green vanilla buttercream), white fondant covering. It's the bits after that you get to have fun with and use your imagination for the finishing touches.
