Here at One Girl Cookies, we don't do character cakes, but we are always more than happy to work with parents to create a Joyful Cake that will work within a party's theme.  Recently, we worked with a mom who was planning a 1st birthday party.  Her son's favorite book is Eric Carle's beautifully illustrated The Very Hungry Caterpillar and she was hoping to do a Very Hungry Caterpillar cake.  I suggested that we do one of our "Cookie Cakes" in a style inspired by the book.


We used the round-tip piping around the base of each tier to create the caterpillar crawling along, taking bites out of all of the fruits, veggies, and leaves he comes across.  For the hungry caterpillar's snacks, we did mini decorated sugar cookies iced in bright colors with black dots to represent the holes eaten through each item.


The result was super cute and a delicious treat for some very hungry party guests!
