We love children's book themed parties, and the beautiful collage artwork of Eric Carle is definitely a huge source of inspiration. The Very Hungry Caterpillar is all about eating, so what could be better than a Hungry Caterpillar birthday cake? How about one that's all natural and has rainbow colored layers inside?

Fern Treacey of Australian CraftBlog wanted to experiment with all natural food colors so she decided to go all out with her son's 3rd birthday cake. The cake layers turned out yummy vivid shades, and she even managed to use the all natural colorings to paint fondant and cut it out collage-style like Eric Carle. Check out her blog where she goes into detail about the process and offers up wonderful tips for creating your own work of edible art.
