The Very Hungry Caterpillar Cake

I was asked to make a cake of a children’s book, The Hungry Caterpillar. I researched online to get ideas. Most of the cakes were three tier. They were nice, but I decided I wanted this cake to look like a book.  This cake was fun to make, cutting out all the foods and pieces of the caterpillar (fondant).  It is chocolate cake with butter cream icing, covered by fondant (homemade marshmallow fondant, which is easy to make and less expensive than pre-made that you buy in a cake supply store).  MMF also tastes better, especially to children, as it is sweet!

The cake was a huge hit with all the guests at the party. I was very happy with the results.
