Hungry Caterpillar Cupcakes

Hungry Caterpillar Cupcakes | Lil Miss CakesThis is such an easy, quick, yet super cute cupcake display for a “Very Hungry Caterpillar” themed party. I baked some vanilla cupcakes and swirled some frosting on top. I made a bright lime green buttercream and a bright yellow buttercream. I placed both colors into a piping bag fitted with a plain tip and piped simple swirls. This is my favorite and signature frosting application. For the face, I rolled out red fondant and cut it into an oval. I cut out yellow, green, and black fondant pieces to decorate the face. I allowed the face to dry for a few days so it would hold up once placed on the cupcake. The topper was much bigger than the cupcake it was placed upon, but it was a perfect, and simple. It was a lot easier than baking a small cake and covering it in fondant. I wish I had made these to go with my son’s Very Hungry Caterpillar cake, it would have been perfect!
