Before school ended this last year the school had a cake walk and asked for cakes to be donated. I of course couldn't just pick up a cake, I wanted to make something. It was a jungle theme so I found this super cute Monkey Cake on Parenting. I of course made it my own and I think it turned out super cute!
What you'll need:
Trimming the cakes:
For the white, red and pink frosting:
Frosting the cake:
Assembling the cake:
Alexis Notes: I used My Rolled Buttercream Frosting an tinted it 2 shades of brown and a little bit pink for the lips. I rolled out a little of the white and made the whites of the eyes and added a little crescent moons on each york patty to the whites of the eyes. I used Wilton Gel Colors to die the fondant (this was before I found my now favorite AmeriColor at Hobby Lobby). I used a little black fondant for the nostrils.
I say this Monkey is prefect for any night!
