This monkey turned out so sweet for this little girl Kennedi. The round cake was for the adults and the monkey cake was intended as a smasher for the 1 year old. The actual cake is a marble using white cake and strawberry cake. To make the ears I took a large round cookie cutter and cut sideways across the ear to expose the interior cake. Then I frosted all of the brown brown monkey. The only fondant on her cake is the monkey’s earrings and the colorful flower. I felt like those would not interfere with smash-ability so it would be fine. The adult cake is wrapped in a tie dye marble of all the little pieces I had left over from various week’s projects. The letters were made using the marbled fondant and were pressed into chocolate forms. I definitely prefer things that cut rather than things that mould when using fondant.
