Cheeky Monkey Cake

3D Monkey Cake

3d monkey cakeThis was my attempt at making a 3D monkey cake for my great-grandaughter's baby shower. I had never attempted to make any decorated cake before. So, I decided to break the structure down into small elements. The torso of the monkey was baked in a loaf pan. The head was baked in a ss bowl that was about the right size for the head. Trimmings from the torso were used to form the arms and legs that are under the blanket. Blocks were cut from a cake baked in an 8X8" pan. The banana was shaped from modeling chocolate and colored with gel food coloring. The face, ears, hands, and feet were sculpted with flesh colored fondant and shaded with cocoa powder and pink flower dust. The cake was a double chocolate. The fur was a dark chocolate buttercream and piped with a grass tip to represent the fur. He is lying on a bed made of two 9X12" layers. One was a yellow cake and the other was strawberry. We had a very large turn out for the shower and still had cake left-over.

I hope you enjoyed my pics.
