The theme of the show was "New Beginnings". My cake represented the life cycle as a caterpillar turns into a butterfly. There were 5 size stages of caterpillars shown, as well as the crysalis and butterflies on top.
The butterflies were made following directions on this site. I hand-modeled the caterpillars and colored them with a combination of pens and gel colors. The leaves were made with marbelized fondant.
