Butterfly Life Cycle For 2005 Arizona Annual Cake And Sugar Arts Show

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.

unfortunately, I didn't place (I was in the amateur category). I was marked down because of the use of fondant on top and BC on bottom - my solution to last-minute troubles with the BC not smoothing on top! Also they thought the white bottom didn't go with the grass and leaves...oh well :-(
