Monkey Birthday Cake with a Surprise! (1909)
For this 1st birthday monkey cake we tried to incorporate a little portion for daddy. Both dad and daughter have a birthday on the same day, so to honor dad as well we included him sitting at the back of the cake holding a cupcake.
The top of the cake includes our favorite little baby monkey sitting at the edge of the top tier wearing a pink party hat and diaper. The top tier is baby pink with polka dots in dark brown, light pink and celadon.
The middle tier includes light pink fondant with cutout swirls in baby pink, celadon and dark brown. Flavors and fillings included carrot cake with vanilla buttercream, marble cake with chocolate buttercream and vanilla with oreos and cream buttercream.
