My friend Megan is expecting her first baby in a few weeks, so today we had a baby shower for her! She is decorating the baby's room in a cute monkey theme, so I made a monkey cake. Of course!
The monkey is made with rolled fondant, traced from clip art, and cut with an x-acto knife. The trees were cut freehand, and the leaves were cut with a small leaf-shaped fondant cutter. The letters are cut using my Cricut Cake machine (love it).
The cake was three layers of dark chocolate cake with peanut butter buttercream filling. Delicious!
Congratulations Megan! I can't wait to meet your little one when he or she arrives!
