Caterpillar Cupcakes

 

 

I made Very Hungry Caterpillar themed cupcakes for my sister’s shower. She just adopted a little boy and before they left we threw her a shower. The theme was Very Hungry Caterpillar so I wanted to make a special treat. I found a similar idea online and just tweaked it some for the shower.

I created Funfetti cupcakes for the body and a small, round cake for the head. I used 29 cupcakes to assembly the caterpillar’s body. I had some left over cupcakes that I decorated with green sprinkles to represent the grass under the caterpillars feet. I dyed Vanilla icing green to ice the cupcakes to represent the body.

I used a small, round cake to represent the caterpillar’s head. I iced this cake in icing I dyed red. I started with a pink colored Vanilla icing. This allowed less food coloring to be used, since it already started as a pink hue.

I used a pastry bag with melted chocolate to form the feet, eyes, mouth, and antennae on wax paper. I let these pieces chill and harden until the start of the shower.

I also created their son’s name, Jaxson, with the melted chocolate. I placed his name on the icing when it was still slightly warm and let it melt into the iced cupcake. It gave a taste of chocolate for those who got the center cupcakes. These caterpillar cupcakes were a big hit at the party!
