Craftsy wrote a great article about storybook themed cakes.  They included a birthday cake I made with a The Very Hungry Caterpillar design.

This gorgeous Hungry Caterpillar birthday cake by Craftsy member and cake artist SweetandSwanky is extremely reminiscent of the author’s illustrations. Contrary to the previous cake, the elements on this cake relating back to the story were meticulously hand-cut into two-dimensional shapes from gum paste. Once each shape was allowed to dry thoroughly, they were painted by hand with a combination of colored gel paste and vodka. When re-creating the food from the story, remember to include the holes in each piece through which the caterpillar ate!Craftsy
