The Very Hungry Caterpillar

This week I had the pleasure of making Orlando’s first birthday cake and cookies.  A very special friend of mine with a big, contagious smile 🙂

Very Hungry Caterpillar-1

The theme of the party was The Very Hungry Caterpillar.  The cake was vanilla with vanilla buttercream filling covered in fondant.  I made the caterpillar using a bundt tin and made it chocolate mud.  The fruit was made using modeling chocolate, already pre-coloured and very convenient.

Very Hungry Caterpillar-2

To go with the cake I made some Very Hungry Caterpillar cookies.  iced with royal icing using the flooding method.  The photos of these aren’t great, I only had time for a couple of quick snapshots with my little camera.

Happy Birthday Orlando, I look forward to celebrating many more with you 🙂
