It was a wonderful day today. I had the pleasure of making a Hungry Caterpillar themed cake for gorgeous little mans first birthday and dedication.
Months ago when my friend told me the theme and it had to serve 100 people, I knew I finally had the chance to go crazy! It stood one and a half metres tall and just fit in the car. It traveled fully assembled one and a half hours away to the party and made it with no incidents.
The details – the 12 inch square base tier was 5 layers of Red Velvet with vanilla butter cream tinted yellow, green, orange and blue.
The 2nd tier (the Cherry Pie) was a 10" round with a cut out wedge. It was fudgy choc mud with dark choc ganache.
The cupcake was Banana cake with a solid chocolate cup and multi coloured banana butter cream layers ♥
It sat proudly on the most incredible dessert table created by my amazing friend Leesa Holt…she is a party planner extraordinaire! Well done Leesa! x
It was a perfect day, only marred by a thunderstorm that swept through drenching everyone AND the cake! Yikes!! Luckily we had plenty of before storm photos :)
I LOVED making this cake! Happy Birthday gorgeous Riley! :) xx
