The Very Hungry Caterpillar was a very apt theme for my daughter’s 1st birthday last weekend because she is an excellent eater.
I’ve spoken before about how she happily devours everything I give her and it makes me proud as punch.
She actually turned 1 today (well, technically, at 11.10pm tonight) and it stormed this evening, just like it did on the night she was born.
This amazing birthday cake was made by my wonderful friend Ju’eta who is an excellent baker and cake decorator. It was an absolute masterpiece and I want to publicly give the lovely Ju’eta a big THANK YOU with hugs and kisses. You’re the best! (If you want to book her for your special event cake drop me a line via the contact form).
So I guess you are wondering about the specifics… the body was made of vanilla and raspberry swirl cake and the head waschocolate cake. It was piped all over with swiss meringue buttercream in two shades of green, one of which was whipped up nice and bubbly to resemble caterpillar fur. Phew, incredible!
My hungry hubby is finishing off the last delicious piece as I type this, so that is the end of Poppy’s Very Hungry Caterpillar for this year. For more pictures of Poppy getting stuck into the green icing hop on over to my mummy blog.
