Here is the last of the Hungry Caterpillar Cake tutorials…. after this you’ll be able to master your very own VHC Cake
To make the apple, cut out a red circle of fondant
Cut out a small triangle at the top and then smooth the hard corners with a modelling tool or your fingers
Trace and then cut out a leaf shape from some green fondant and attach to the apple using some water. Using a matchstick, make the leaf indents.
For the pears, cut out two circles of green fondant.
Using your fingers, stretch out the top part of the circle to get that pear shape
Roll out two small sausages of black fondant and attach to the pear using some water
For the strawberries, cut out 4 circles of red fondant and then slightly stretch out the bottom of the circle to get a balloon shape.
Roll out some green fondant and cut out 4 stars using a cutter
Attach using water and mark in some dots using a matchstick
For the oranges, cut out 5 circles of orange fondant
Mark a small black dot on top of each orange using an edible marker or a small bit of edible food colouring, and then make small dots using a matchstick.
I also cut out tiny circles in all the different colours to use as a border for the cake. In the following picture you can see the food all drying out (as mentioned earlier, I made the food a week in advance, but you could easily make it months in advance)
You can also see the 3 plums, which were simply 3 circles of purple fondant.
Happy Cake Making
