oscar's birthday cake

i finished oscar's birthday cake this evening.. i used two bundt cakes to make a caterpillar. then i decorated it like the very hungry caterpillar. it was fun painting on the cake.. i even used a big plastic tray as a palette to mix icing colors with. hershey kisses for the feet.

i usually wrap some cardboard in foil for a cake board, but i dont like the way it looks. i liked how danielle wrapped hers in wrapping paper for lane's birthday, but it showed some grease spots on it.. so i cut a piece off of a $1 plastic tablecloth and taped it on some cardboard for this one. it worked great.. it was really easy to wipe up any icing that was out of place.

Hi, I googled cake ideas for this same party theme for my daughter & your blog came up. The cake you made is so great! I plan on making something very similar. If you don't mind me asking how long did the cake take you to put together & frost? Also about how much frosting did you use? I would appreciate any tips or advice you can give my email is d.mansfield03@gmail
Take care,
