How to Make Inchworm Cake
- Heat oven to 350 F (325 F for dark or nonstick pan). Bake and cool cake as directed on box for 12-cup fluted tube cake pan. (I just used my bundt pan)
- Lay out cake and cut about 1/3 or 1/4 off the side, depending how high you want his body to be. Then, take the piece you cut off and cut it in two for the front and back of Inchworm. Freeze the pieces of cake for at least an hour for easier frosting. Attach the pieces with frosting.
- The rest of the pieces that you place on the Inchworm depend on your creativity. When I was making the antennas I didn't have the gumdrops so I used black olives. For me, it was whatever worked for the moment.
- If you have any problems with the assembling you can check out the diagrams on www.bettycrocker.com and search for Inchworm cake.
