Little Boy Cakes

I have been QUITE absent from blogging the last couple months. May and June tend to be really busy cake months for me. So – I thought I would let you in on a few of the cakes I have done and I’ll hopefully get some of my home dec posts up soon!

I have done the ball cupcakes a couple time – but this is the first one in the shape of a “3”.

And another monkey/banana combo! If I don’t roll another banana for awhile, I won’t be sad!! They are all hand rolled and painted. I should’ve counted but I’m sure there are well over 300 bananas on the large cake alone. It took me 4 hours to do just the bananas.

Monkey Baby Shower

I just got home from a baby shower for my little nephew. He is a cutie pie and well-behaved to boot! His grandma put on the shower and went with the jungle/safari theme. We had banana punch, banana splits and banana cupcakes with chocolate cream cheese buttercream. I made the cupcakes and the little display cake – a monkey with bananas of course!

Isn’t he adorable?!!?!?!

The cake is  a 6″ round with a half ball pan on top. It is covered in a yellow buttercream and fondant bananas with a fondant monkey. Everything is edible except for the skewer holding the monkey in place.
