Girl monkey baby shower cake

A customer asked that I make a baby shower cake to match the decor of the party. She brought me a napkin with a picture of a little girl monkey on it and told me to do whatever I wanted. I’m not real creative, and I usually ask customers to bring me a picture of something to go by. So, I did the best that I could. I would have liked to have added blossoms to the bottom tier, but there was not enough time. The 6, 8 and 10 inch cakes are iced in vanilla and chocolate buttercream. The monkey and ribbon around the middle tier are made from fondant. The customer was very happy, and that’s all that matters.

Thanks SarahBeth3….I love baking, so I opened a bakery. Cake decorating is a big part of it, but I still struggle with it.


That is one of the sweetest monkey cakes I have ever seen!! Great job!


That is very kind of you farmersmom! Thank you very much.
