A few weeks ago I got an order for a box of Hungry Caterpillar cupcakes for a little girls  2nd birthday.  From a young age I have loved the hungry caterpillar book with its little holes running through all the food the caterpillar has eaten.

Anyway back to the birthday, I had no brief apart from she likes the hungry caterpillar so I decided to tell the story making each cupcake tell a page of the book each.  And here’s the results:

     

 

At the birthday party the story was read aloud and a cupcake was given out to a child after the page had been read.  I don’t know if your familiar with the story but on the 6th day the hungry caterpillar eats one sausage, one gherkin, one piece of watermelon, one cupcake, piece of cherry pie, one lollipop, one piece of salami, one ice cream, one piece of cheese and one piece of chocolate cake! Phew I don’t think I could have eaten all of that but all of those were handmade out of marzipan on the top of the cupcake and according to my sources there was a little bit of a scuffle when it came to who got to eat that one! The children loved the party and the edible story.


 

Over coffee the other day I was talking to a business friend and asked what book she would turn into a cupcake story and she said she would have the Gruffalo, my minds now buzzing with ideas of the little mouse and his walk through the woods!

I would love to know what your favourite childhood story was or which book you would like to see made into a cupcake story.

Right now I’m off as I have a new book myself from America on making cupcakes look like food and I’m going to try and make baked beans look appetising on a cupcake, yum!
