A caterpillar cake

The theme for this week's Unplugged Project at Unplug Your Kids is Homemade.

Sunnyboy recently saw a boxed caterpillar party cake for £5 at our local supermarket and decided to buy it. I explained that it was expensive and suggested we buy the ingredients to make our own cake instead. Our caterpillar cake didn't look like the one in the shop, or even much like a caterpillar, but it was a lot cheaper and Sunnyboy was very pleased with it.

  8. Awwww...how sweet! The memories are sweeter than the original longing, I'm sure.

    I'm impressed you gave it a go--I'm terrible at trying to recreate things. Martha Stewart has no competition from the Kroeker house, that's for sure.

    You've sure got a knack for making things work!

  11. Yummy! I had plans to make a caterpillar cake just using chocolate cupcakes zigzagged on a tray - a face on the first and feet on the rest - but the party never happened...
