The Very Hungry Caterpillar Cake
We were excited when we got the order for The Very Hungry Caterpillar cake, because I was more than just a little familiar with the book. It was one of my favorite children's books growing up, and it's popularity exploded over the years. Millions of copies have been printed of Eric Carle's beautifully painted book and this children's classic dating back to 1969, has been translated into 30 languages! Although I could have easily remembered each and every page from memory, it always helps to have the book in front of you for accuracy, and our client was happy to bring us one for Rick to work from. The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a great match for Rick because of the painterly style throughout the book, and he had a lot of fun with this one. The cake had partly eaten handpainted fruits completely around the cake and the gluttonous caterpillar placed on top. The cake was gorgeous in person with the varying shades of color and painterly style. It was a nice trip down memory lane, and one we're happy to take anytime!
Aloha, 'til next time!
