The Cake

One of my favorite things about birthdays, is making the cakes. I think I'll cry when my kids ask for a "store bought cake." Of course we needed a monkey cake, but I didn't like any of the Monkey cake pans or the cake designs with a monkey face. They all looked a little to boyish to me and didn't fit the "vision" I had for Hannah's cake.

I made the base of the cake with yummy pink buttercream frosting. I made HOMEMADE (I am very proud of this!) fondant to make the monkeys. I'm not much of an artist, and the monkeys were harder to make than I thought...but I think it turned out pretty cute.
