C is for this crazy mad cow-terpillar cupcake cake.
This cake was inspired by Mad Cow Giant Microbe plushy available from the Neatorama Shop. Originally the kids and I were going to make a regular caterpillar cake, but my daughter kind of came up with this idea instead. She said, "Let's make a mad cow-terpillar cake." I admit we aren't the best cake decorators, but before you submit us to Cake Wrecks please consider the fact that this was created by a 3 1/2 year old and 2 year old with the aid of someone a wee bit older, but with the decorating skills of a 3 year old.
In case you are wondering we used store bought cake mix and frosting (chocolate and vanilla). It's 4 cupcakes long. The eyes are dried cranberries with little candy pearls in the center. We sprinkled a few white crystals on top, because some of us like sparkly stuff.
This cake is in honor of Daddy who studied mad cow in graduate school.
