I did this cake for a woman that wanted to have an insect theme for her son's 8th birthday.  The body is a bundt pan cut in half, and I used the mini-balloon mold (the one with 6 mini-cakes) for the feet, face and butt.  I had to cut the pointed end off the balloons for the feet, but I kept it on for the ends.  The feet are Wilton tip 16 stars, and the fur is Wilton tip 233.  I love how it turned out.  The only problem is that the lettering didn't make it to the customer - it stuck to the lid of the box :-(

Baby Einstein 1st Birthday Cake. Caterpillar made from mini circle cake pan. (Thanks for the great ideas I got from this website! ) Used rolled buttercream for the caterpillar -- worked out great! This was my first time using the rolled buttercream.  The characters are made using the color flow technique. The second Tier is the a chocolate cake.

I made leaves on  the side of this cake because the caterpillar eats everything including the last leaf.

The theme was Baby Einstein. This was my first attempt at a cake for an event that was so special, my nephew's first birthday party. I used the Viva paper towel method. I was nervous and had a little problem with the letters. Also, I wasn't sure what kind of cover to use on the cake board, so I used paper... notice the oil on the letters and the feet and tail.

The customer just wanted the baby einstein characters around a tiered cake (with matching cupcakes).  Funfetti 10, 8, 3" layers....the 3" was the 'smash' cake for the birthday girl.  Buttercream icing with colorflow and gumpaste accents.  I'll upload pics of the sides as well so you can see all the colorflow was my first try at colorflow and I had some cracking issue, but overall, I love this technique!  Thanks for looking!

This cake is based from the Eric Carle's book" The Hungry Caterpillar". Made it for my son's 1st birthday, who loves the story. It has buttercream frosting with hersey kisses for the feet.

This was for my son's first birthday. I ended up making a 7-up, strawberry, rootbear float and snickers cakes for the humps.

This was my sons 1st birthday cake-and my very first 3-D cake! I have always just made sheet cakes, but I wanted this one to be special for my baby. Thanks to the suggestions on this site, it came out so great! I used b/c frosting and Wilton dome cake pans for the body, black jellybeans and pink nilla wafers for the face, and red pipe cleaners and red craft puff balls for the antennae. I also made a matching smash cake. Thank you all for all your help!

I made this for my son's first birthday after getting the idea off of another site.  I used the sports ball pan to make the cakes and simply decorated it using the basic "star" method. The colors were all very bright, so I made them a day ahead of time to let the color develop. I'm happy with the way it turned out even though I forgot to add the feet! Doh!

Cakes for a boy's "Going Buggy Birthday Bash."  Giant beetle is made from a soccer ball pan and cupcake; ladybug and bumblebee are sports ball pan and cupcakes; caterpillar is made from mini ball pans; worm is made from a bundt pan cut in half.  All buttercream, except for fondant antennae and grass.  "Dirt" is chocolate graham crackers.  Every single cake had a different filling!

A family friend had seen a pic of the caterpillar that I made for my son's 1st birthday party a couple of months ago and wanted to know if I could recreate it on a half sheet cake (they were having at least 50 people.)  So this is what I made. I was inspired by a pic a saw in a forum post on here.  It's chocolate cake with cookies'n'cream filling and iced in Pastry Pride with BC decorations.

This is a cake I did for my cousin's daughter's first birthday. The caterpillar's body sections are extra large muffins with bc smoothed w/Viva towels. Only the antenna are fondant. Everything else is bc. Had a great time making this one!

I did these up for a few ladies I know on another forum and the infants had turned 1 yr old!

I copied this from another photo on this site.  I used the Wilton 3D ball pan so it took three cake mixes to make (I made a sixth ball as a smash cake since this was for a first birthday party).  Thanks lkfarley for the great idea.

Birthday cake for my son's first birthday.  Great because it gave him his own section to destroy and the guests to enjoy themselves.  I got this idea from the Wilton website.  My first attempt at baking and decorating a cake.

I owe this design to jennyshultz11. I loved her concept and copied it almost exactly -- thank you, Jenny! I made this cake for my nephew Terry's first birthday party and it was a big hit! Two-tier cake iced in white BC with all BC accents. The "Happy Birthday" ribbon is rolled fondant iced with BC letters. Thanks for looking!

This cake was inspired by so many of the adorable Baby Einstein cakes posted here, but mostly a cake posted by jennyschultz11.  Thank you Jenny!  The picture insets are other characters that wrapped around the cake.  All BC, characters done freehand on the cake.

Tried to make a leaf cake using the heart shaped pan.  Using a bundt pan, I made the caterpillar.  I cut it in half and placed the pieces opposite of each other.  Chocolate chips for the feet, M&M's for eyes, licorice for antennaes.

This was done for a 1st birthday. Cake is 5-6" rounds, decorated in buttercream. The hearts were at his mom's request,  because his birthday falls on Valentine's day!
