Hi All,
I'm having trouble figuring this out and I'm sure it's not as hard as I'm making it out to be.

I want to make a 3D caterpillar. It needs to serve approximately 25 people. The caterpillar has a head and 4 sections to it's body. I've tried searching in the galleries but right now the search feature isn't working so I can't ask anyone who's done it before.

I do have the Wilton sports ball pan and mini pans but neither of those sizes seem to work for this number of servings. I don't have any other type of pan or bowl to make rounded shape, which leads me to believe I'd have to carve the shapes. Can you say...UGH!!??

Anyone have any clever ideas?

could you use your smaller ball pan and just add more sections to the body to get the number of servings you need?

Here's a cool one that uses cookies as well as cake in the design:
