Still Hungry... After All... These Years... Oohh!


So original gangster, Coco Cake style, Mr.Hungry Old Caterpillar cupcake party train was in my life a few times in the past while. The first being... the adorable version I made for super duper cute baby Asher, ordered by his mom Tanya, pictured here with his big brother Kainen!


The next super exciting way this little guy slinked into my life again:


I was on the cover of the Food Section in the Vancouver Sun, our local newspaper, with the second ever Coco Cake Hungry Catepillar! Yahoo!! That's me in the purple dress! Actually that dress I had made out of some vintage 1960s fabric I inherited from my dad's mom, my grandma, who passed away in the 1990s. When my other grandma, my Poh-poh, (my mom's mom), saw this picture (she's 87 years old) she phoned me and said "you should've cut your hair! Your bangs are covering your whole face! Why didn't you get your bangs trimmed!" Haha. Sorry Poh-poh. Bowl Cut Bangs for life for L.K.Sung... Thanks Mia for including me in the article! :)

Below is a pretty major picture explosion. But it's kind of fun. It shows you the process of how a caterpillar gets from being just a bunch of cakes, to a lovingly arranged party platter ready to march off the table into Cupcake Land. This guy was made of coconut cupcakes and frosted with vanilla buttercream...

Hungry Caterpillar 3. Ready, set, go!

Until next time Coco Cake Land!

I finally figured out how to see all the photos from the online article (duh). What a lovely photo of you! I love that cococake won the (unspoken) most beautiful/cute/quirky cupcakes contest - since it's all cococake photos! BIG congrats, well deserved. Now stop working so hard so we can hang out again!

Hi Lyndsay,

I borrowed your Hungry Caterpillar for a birthday party for a one year old who's very dear to us. I used my Black Chocolate Cake recipe, fondant leaves made with a leaf press and the letters are 'cake pops' covered with white chocolate candy and fondant letters...so fun! Thanks for the inspiration.

I found the amazing 'grassy' wrapping paper at Superstore of all places, what a great place for the hungry caterpillar to graze!

Oh my goodness gracious...what genius! My 3 year old son Christopher and I are doing all things 'Cc' through The Hungry Caterpillar. I couldn't have come across your blog at a more opportune time. We have now decided to weave our theme around this cake come September 10. Thanks for the inspiration. Congratulations on the article too.
