Happy birthday Ella Kate! This sweet little girl, barely 3 years old, is such a smarty! I was honored to be able to make her cake. Her mom gave me a party plate to go by and pretty much let me do my thing. Triple layers of chocolate with vanilla buttercream (at their request). I copied the monkey party hats from someone's site who worked with clay. The cake itself was easy to design... just grab a shade of blue and yellow and make some polka dots! To date, this was by far the best time I've ever had making a cake. I'd like to send a special shout out to my wonderful husband for coming up with the idea to have one of the monkey's eating a peeled banana. I went a step further painted them with brown food color to age them up. This cake was F.U.N.!
