Monkey Party (Part 2)

Posted on

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. 

Mission accomplished. 

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.  🙂
