Carterpillar 3D Baby Einstein

 Carterpillar 3D Baby Einstein  on Cake Central

I made this Baby Einstein inspired Carterpillar for our oldest when he was 1. I used 1/2 mini cake balls overfilled to get the ball effect. I used B/C for the color and I used orange Gum Balls for the entenna tops. I used straws to hold them up.(today I would used chocolate covered pretzels to make the cake fully edible.) (Cake made in march 2003)

Thank you, I use chocolate covered pretzels in a lot of 2 or 3 layer cakes & they work really well. You have to use real chocolate or chocolate wafers though because choc. chips dont work too much lecithin I think. I even use them on smaller cakes I afix them to chocolate covered graham crackers like little posts and sit the small cake on top.

That is sooo cute! Thanks for the idea of using choc. covered pretzels in place of dowels or straws. Great trick. You did a fabulous job of capturing the B. Einstein caterpillar!
