A week before the party I was baking cornbread, so I baked the cake and cupcakes as well, and froze them until the morning of the party. It helped me have less to do. Also, when I worked near a bakery, they would freeze them purposely because it made them easier to frost.
My husband used to work near a bakery as well, and learned some of their tricks too. He was home and did most of the frosting for me.
I added the eyes, and the antenna tooth picks I made.
It was really simple, especially since I didn’t have to do most of it! I never knew that you kept all the cupcakes together to frost them for something like this, versus frosting each individually.
I had one extra cupcake, so I made a fat, round caterpillar. I know it looks terrible, but it tasted good, and gave my sister a chance to eat a cupcake before the party!
My son was so cute when eating the cake, seeing that was what the party was all about! He picked it up and ate it like a cookie!
