Monkey Cake

In Cake Decorating on January 15, 2010 at pm

This is the first cake that I decorated after completing the cake decorating course.  It was also the first time I used piping gel to transfer an outlined pattern onto the cake.  I made this monkey cake for my dad’s birthday because monkeys always make him smile (and because he’s kind of a baboon himself)  😉  Here’s the link to my favourite yellow cake recipe.  The dark frosting is simply chocolate buttercream.

If you want to know how I did any of the decorations (ie. tip number, icing consistency, etc.), feel free to ask me in a comment and I’ll post the details in a reply.
