One thing about being here in Utah, there will not be a lack of cakes needing to be made for my family. It was my niece's birthday the other day, and she requested a monkey theme. I was happy to oblige.
Now, I know you all think I hate every cake I make, but that is just not true. I actually like this one, even if I had to make two batches of frosting in order to make it because the first one tasted nasty.
I mean, who can resist this cute little monkey holding her opened banana? I modeled it after a Little Pet Shop monkey.
See the resemblance, a little?
It even has a cute little tail.
And I couldn't resist a really silly play on words. Her name actually rhymes with banana, but I resisted the urge to go that far.
So there you go, a cake I don't hate. For the record.
