Rated 5 out of 5 by preety1 from I made smaller version of this cake since it was for smaller party (25 guests) for baby's first b'day. I used baking pan that is meant for smaller dolls (bakes six base for smaller dolls per pan) & then cut about an inch from the bottom to achieve smaller round shape balls with flat base. for the face of caterpiller I used two ball one on top of each other using Royal icing to stick and followed rest of the direction from this idea. I used Black jelly bean for the legs & pieces of thin Licorise for antena. Eyes and mouth using wilton's ready to use black icing. Cake turned out really really amazing !! It WOW'ed everyone at the party including babies parents. Direction are easy to follow. It did not take long to make this cake at all. It was easy and fun to make this cake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AmyinNC from I have made this for several different occasions, mostly birthdays and just because it is so cute I have made some for school. (With 3 girls in school I always have plenty of reason to make cakes!) I would suggest covering the entire cake with a thin layer of whatever color icing you're using on that segment. THat way if your stars aren't perfect, you're not going to be able to see the cake sticking through the stars. Just a little trick I picked up while using a chocolate cake and light colored stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by estockemer1 from I made this for my daughter's 3rd birthday and got lots of compliments on it. Very easy to do with very impressive results! I didn't bother using any of the candy they recommended and just made the face with frosting and various tips. I completely left the feet off since I couldn't find colored fruit gel candies that would coordinate with the colors I used to frost the cake. Give it a try - you'll be glad you did!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nakoaktok from I just recently made this cake and it was very easy. Have fun with the colors, I think I added a light green and purple to my cake. I loved how all of the pastel colors really came together to produce a great looking cake. I did not make the name for the cake as I was low on time, but plan to give that a try next time I make it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mrslisa from This cake is adorable and I made it for my son's 1st Birthday. I did have to stay up ALL night to make it! I thought that it sounded easy, but it did turn out to be time consuming. Everyone loved it including my son. It's a cute cake to make, but make sure you have enough time to do it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by karabear22 from Very time consuming cake. Hand was very sore after all the stars were done. I didn't make the cookies or use the candy in this recipe. Make sure whoever you make this cake for will appreciate all the time you put into it! Easy to decorate just takes a lot of time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KristieC from I made this cake for my youngest for her first birthday. It was about 3x the size tho due to the number of people we had there. It was easy to make and decorate. And she loved having the "head' all to herself.
