Birthday Monkey Cake

Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Vanilla Cake and Chocolate Cake with Butter cream icing and fondant accessories. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Start with the Wilton teddy bear pan and then create from there, in this case I had to cut the ears off and then re-attach them lower on his head and his legs and arms are made of marshmallows. You just need to think out of the box (or cake pan lol) and have fun :)

Q&A with paulalamarre

drgnflylvs asked:
I really want this cake for my little man's first birthday. Everything he has in his room is jungle themed and this is such an awesome looking cake. If you don't mind me asking, how long did it take to make this?
paulalamarre answered:
Hi drgnflylvs, thank you for the compliment :) this cake took me approx.( from bake to finish) about 6 hours in total. it was a lot of creative thinking to get it to resemble the picture they gave me. Just remember to have fun and smile while you are creating this because he is a funny little monkey :)
