Birthday cake for a little monkey!



This past weekend one of our neighbour girls turned 1! 


A marble cake was requested, and the theme? A pink monkey cake! How fun is that?



I baked up a two-layer 9" x 13" marble cakes and filled it with tasty vanilla buttercream. The cake was then iced in more vanilla buttercream and decorated with a fondant monkey and some colourful polka dots!


I hope you had an awesome first birthday!

  3. Did you use a special cutter for the monkey face, if so where did you find it. I love this cake by the way.

    1. Hey Marc!
      I actually just printed off a picture that I found online, and then used a xacto knife to cut out the fondant after placing the picture on top as a template to follow. It helps if you roll out the fondant, and then let it sit for a couple minutes before cutting it, this will help avoid rips and tears!
      and thank you so much! I had a lot of fun making this one :)
