Caterpillars are one of those insects that always get good press. They are drawn as cute and lovable in books and films and never as the highly venomous, masters of disguise that they can be. But with the bad points of caterpillars put aside we end up with an insect that people tend to make out of all sorts of foods because they are often the perfect shape for kids party’s and snack food. And every now and again something extra special is made in the shape of everyone’s favourite bugs…
Top 10 Caterpillar Themed Party Foods
10 – Cupcakeus Munchus
Made from 30 tasty looking snack cakes this is a great design and the perfect idea for a kids party or BBQ snack food. It has to be said that using lolly-pops for the antenna is genius!
9 – Cookiebee Crumblus
Just saying the words “Cookie Crumble Cheesecake Caterpillars” makes my mouth water and with a great making guide and recipe on the link we could all have a go at them.
8 –Snackus Sandwichie
What I like about this one is that there is no making guide of recipe in the link because you just don’t need it! All you need is a little imagination and someone who likes caterpillars to feed it to!
7 – Caterpizza Pepperolis
Little snack-sized pizzas like these are perfect for a rather amusing caterpillar shaped munch. While there is a making guide in the link I think it is all down to artistic interpretation as to what sorts you use. But this one looks good enough for me to eat.
6 – Pancakus Caterpillus
For a great looking finger snack food idea why not do an edible caterpillar made out of little pancakes! Not only would the kids love it, but I wouldn’t pass it up either! There is no making guide in the link, but then again if you need one, you also need glasses.
5 – Caterpilli Maishmellowi.
These are not just any old marshmallows in the shape of caterpillars, these are Marks & Spencer: Colin the Caterpillar Marshmallows and they are probably the best marshmallows in the entire World.
4 – Sushius Incectucus
Now this is just plain weird, but also very, very creative as well. This tasty looking caterpillar is in fact made from sushi (crab, eel and cucumber slices) and while there is not a making guide or recipe in the link it is one of the best looking I found.
3 – Saltyus Crackaris
Is this really a tasty looking caterpillar made from crackers and a sweet chocolate peanut butter frosting? Oh yes! And there is a great recipe and making guide in the link! This one just makes me smile every time I look at it.
2 – Breadus Bugus
This incredible caterpillar is in fact ‘pull apart’ dinner rolls! Imagine having this with some nice warm soup. Now that thought just made me drool big time. Anyway, there is a full recipe and making guide in the link that even I could follow!
1 – Snackus Wrapus
This amazing chopped chicken & spinach wrap is just a joy to look at let alone eat, but it is my number 1 because the idea behind all of these is to make food fun and if you can make a healthy spinach wrap in the shape of a caterpillar then you deserve number 1 for sure.
