Lots of Bugs

So here are Caleb's cakes--a butterfly, a caterpillar, and a ladybug. Everyone at Bible study thought they were quite "manly" bugs. No pastel-y girly bugs for us! Caleb was quite happy with how it turned out and kept telling me how great it was. Ahhh! That makes it worth it! Caleb wanted a strawberry cake too, so the ladybug was strawberry, as were the smaller cupcakes of the caterpillar (I know, you can't really tell in the picture, but every other cupcake is small, so it looks like the caterpillar is inching along. I guess you had to be there . . . ) The butterfly, as well as the bigger cupcakes, were chocolate. I made the antennae and the legs for the caterpillar out of piped chocolate. (I know, you can't really see the legs either. Oh well.) We brought home 2 small paper plates with leftover cake, so people ate well! Of course, there are 21 of us there, not counting Anna!
