|Sugar-free devil's food cake mini cupcakes with cream cheese frosting|
Yep. It was our little man's very first birthday party. I decided to base our theme on the very adorable "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" children's book by Eric Carle. It was such a wonderful afternoon with family, and there were plenty of tasty treats to be had! Thank heavens for Pinterest, as well.

My third attempt at covering a fondant cake. Second attempt using gum paste. The gum paste dried out quicker than expected, but I think the fruit still looked like fruit, eh?
Table before the punch and fruit dips arrived, and before we sliced up the fruit.
Caterpillar mobile using Chinese lanterns. I found them online super-cheap, then added the eyes, mouth, ears, and little feet with regular scrapbook paper.
Fondant cake topper. What a cute little guy!
