Carterpillar 3d Baby Einstein

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.
