Sweet Mommy A got us to this cake for her little boy's first birthday. When she first contacted us, i was this close to jumping up in the air in with excitement, because, really, i had been pinning for a chance to have a go at this cake for a really long time!
One of the characteristics of Eric Carle's books was his oil painted pictures. The brush strokes are very prominent and we tried to recreate that effect. When we were done with cake, we realized we had used up every single brush we had in the house, and the kitchen was looking more like an art studio rather than a bakery! : P
