The Very Hungry Caterpillar Cake by TheCakingGirl

Hey everyone! I made this The Very Hungry Caterpillar Cake a long time ago, but didn't upload it onto my blog but would like to share it with all of you.  Just found it in an old file on my computer.  It's one of my favorite book as a kid, The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. I've had this cake request several times, and each time I like to replicate the book illustrator's painting style.

  I started off making fruits with white gumpaste. I let them dry for an hour and painting onto them with Wilton food color gels diluted with lemon extract.

I also included the butterfly, ending of the story, onto the cake.
