It was my son’s first birthday and I decided to go with the Baby Einstein Theme for his party. Since he was having a party on a farm where you do all the set up and clean up work I decided to go with a Baby Einstein Cupcake Cake.
I used Betty Crocker Cake mixes (Chocolate, Confetti, Yellow, and Red Velvet). For frosting I used Betty Crocker Whipped Cream Cheese. To color the frosting I used Wilton gel coloring kit and mixed till I got the color I liked. To make the smily face on the cake I used the cake decorating coloring gels from the grocery store.
I tried to mix the colors the closest I could to the Baby Einstein Caterpillar. I made a small cake for the face and just drew the face with the decorating coloring gels. I made cupcakes for the body portion of the caterpillar. I used cupcakes for the feet and antennas.
The whole process was simple but very time consuming so it was great to have my good friend help me.
