I am doing a caterpillar cake for dd's party this weekend. I was going to use the wilton sports ball pan but do you think it would be to big? I don't want a huge catterpillar. I also thought about doing it in halves but didn't know if that would look to squished or would it look ok? Any other ideas would be great.
I did a quick search for caterpillar and here is one that is made with the ball pan
I think it is a great shape and size.
If you do a search there are loads more.
and i made this one (fondant covered) for my nephew's 1st b-day.
just make as many half balls as needed to get the # of servings.
now, if you have or want to buy the MINI-ball pan ...
then each 1/2 ball is 1 serving ...so could make a mongo long caterpillar that wound it's way all over the top of the table (would put each mini-ball on it's own little plate so it become as grab and go....
OR again using the single serving idea---
cupcakes! that have been a bit over filled so they have a HIGH dome. the deco the tops add "grass" around sides of liners and legs that could poke into the cupcakes through the liners.
