Our Favorite Very Hungry Caterpillar Birthday Party Ideas!

What's green and red and makes for tons of creative (and delicious) party ideas? The Very Hungry Caterpillar, of course! Check out our guide to including the cute little crawler in all the birthday necessities, from awesome (and easy!) cakes to fun, leafy decorations and playful games. Talk about a storybook birthday party...

Cupcake Caterpillar
This cupcake arrangement does double duty (don't you just love that!) as a dessert and a clever centerpiece. You can bake (or buy) green frosted cupcakes and arrange in the wooly-caterpillar shape. That blushing face is just a layered white or yellow cake covered in red fondant (red buttercream icing will work too, it just won't look as smooth). Use orange, green and black fondant to create the two antennae, eyes, nose and the bootie feet of the caterpillar. That's it! Impressive looking, but easy.
