Mad Cow-terpillar Cake

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.

Don't worry, Cakewrecks only picks on professional cakes. Or at least, cakes made by someone paid to make cakes. Or homemade Cakewrecks tribute cakes, she likes those.

I think she once accidentally posted a homemade cake and got some harsh feedback from the cake baker.

Before you say anything else derogatory about your decorating skills - I just want you to know that the cakes I remember most as a kid are the ones my Mom decorated for me. Now that I decorate cakes for other people, my Mom is hesitant to make me cakes anymore, which makes me sad because I love her baking. What makes yours even more special is that all of you worked on it together... and it's absolutely adorable. I'm a sucker for cakes decorated by kids.
