My friend's adorable little guy just had his 1st Birthday, and I was honored that she asked my mom (My Cake Hero) to make the cake. This little guy has a jungle themed nursery, and so to keep with his theme, she wanted a cute little monkey birthday cake, and that's exactly what she got.

Everything is made from scratch. The frosting is the best. For the body of the monkey, she adds coloring to her frosting and used a star tip on the icing bag to give it texture. The balloons are exceptional, because even though fondant looks pretty darn cool and comes out smooth (almost like wrapping something in fabric), Fondant does not taste good at all. She tried something different this time. The balloons are small individual cakes, and the frosting is made by using candy melts. If you take a good look, you wouldn't even be able to tell the difference between this and fondant. Let me assure you though; your taste buds will thank you a thousand times over. The hat was made with a gumpaste so it could harden, it's not edible, but makes a good keepsake, and it's inserted to the top side of the cake using skewers. Last but not least, see the platform that this is resting on? My Hero does this with all of her cakes. She applies her colors and rolls out a large piece of fondant, then rolls the Happy Birthday greeting to make an imprint. Once that is done, she wraps that around the cardboard cake board to make it look nice.
