I quizzed him a lot on what would make him happy and since he was hooked on to this wonderful book of “The hungry caterpillar” by Eric Carle, he suggested having a caterpillar cake for his 4th birthday.
I was very happy about his choice but had no idea how start up with the design of a caterpillar. I Googled and came up with some wonderful ideas and lots of varieties to choose from. This was simplest of many cakes.
I got some round aluminum take ways packs and baked simple sponge cakes, I referred to Sagari’s sponge cake recipe. They were awesome.
I baked five sponge cakes and assembled them like a caterpillar I used Wilton’s butter cream icing for the frosting.
It was a great hit among his classmates; they just loved the design & enjoyed biting into the caterpillar, now there was no telling who was more hungry!! The hungry caterpillar was reduced to a few crumbles. And we too had a wonderful time hosting those little angels.
We also had a small party among our close family friends and I had made an Ocean themed cake for him too, since I needed a big sponge for this cake, so I decided to order a readymade sponge and I used the butter cream icing to frost the top.
It was so fascinating for the kids to have a view of the underwater. I made seaweed with fruity rolls up and I managed to get some yummy gummy sharks and other sea animals from the Chocolate section of the supermarket.
That was really fun for me as well!.
