I have been asked to do a bug-themed cake birthday cake for a little boy's second birthday. I want to do a tiered cake with a caterpillar weaving through the cake. I searched the gallery, but can't really find inspiration. Does anyone have any pictures they could share with me?

Thanks!

You could use the Wilton mini ball pan to create the caterpillar and then decorate that or Williams Sonoma has a caterpillar cake pan that is extra cute. Don't know your time frame but either of these would work. Another thought..if you can assemble the cake when you get to your destination, you could use the Wilton silicone cupcake cups with feet and make cupcakes, decorate them with pulled stars and then add eyes and antennae and such. I've done that previously and it has worked well. You can find the directions in the Wilton Cupcake book.
