Hi, I’m back to tell you more about the monkey party.
So where was I?
I made 3 cakes.
Oh yeah, so I needed cupcakes.
I made the faces out of fondant, and they had different expressions:
Here they are in a little tower:
So, with all that, I still thought it wasn’t enough.
I decided to throw in some sugar cookies. In banana shapes, of course.
Monkeys like bananas—get it?
That’s great, except I never piped icing on cookies before. I guess I like a challenge. Or I must like the stress…
Yeah, I don’t think so.
Either way, I thought it was a good idea. I guess they came out OK. At least they tasted yummy!
And then I got another bright idea.
Cake balls. Made with banana cake.
Yes, they were pretty simple to make, but time consuming. I put them in cute mini cupcake liners, and they didn’t look too bad!
These were a hit. People loved them.
I also found these cute chocolate molds and made 30 lollipops. And it took 20 minutes to make each one because of all the different colors. At times, I wanted to scream. But it was worth it.
And finally, the full dessert table—my first one ever!
So that’s it for now! I can’t wait until the next party.
Um, did I really just say that?
Yeah, remind me when it’s the day before the party and I’m freaking out. 🙂
