The Very Hungry Caterpillar Cake

Tomorrow we are celebrating Holly's first birthday with a big family meal.  Its a shame to spoil the surprise for them but I just couldn't resist posting a picture of Holly's first birthday cake - The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

The cake is a very rich, very sweet sponge made with 8 eggs.  I made it in a tiny round tin (Lara's cake tin!) and a retro tin with a hole in the middle.  The head is coated with marzipan and fondant icing.  The body is decorated with a green buttercream and lots of different shades of green sprinkles of various shapes and sizes.
