I want to tell you about the monkey party we had last month.
You know, in case you want to throw your own monkey party and need some ideas.
Or maybe you just want to look at pictures.
And please don’t mind the pictures. We rented a room at the local firehouse, so not the best backgrounds. But hey, it beat having 30 little kids in my house.
Jumping on my couches.
Dropping cake on the rug.
Yep, the firehouse was the way to go.
So, this was my first tiered cake. I have to say, it wasn’t easy for me. But it was great fun making the little leaves with my new fondant leaf cutter!
I made the monkeys out of fondant. My first-ever fondant figures.
Then I wanted a simple, yet different cake—so here is my monkey. I love him. I made his head with the Wilton sports ball pan, his shoulders with a large loaf pan, and then did some carving and adding in between. His face is made out of fondant, his ears are cupcakes, and his hair is piped on.
I also always make a plain cake, that says Happy Birthday on top. This is it. Complete with chocolate monkeys around it (I made them with a mold).
And that’s it….
Ha, did you really believe that??? Of course that’s not it!
That was certainly not enough. Stay tuned for part 2 tomorrow—more monkeys headed your way!!
