Silly Monkey Heads!!

I just LOVE doing a baby's first birthday cake! Besides wedding cakes and maybe sweet 16 / Quincenara cakes, they can be some of the biggest and elaborate cakes I do. Your very first birthday cake is a big thing and it should be special. This week I am making a cake for a one-year and my inspiration piece is the party plats, which have the cutest little monkey head on them. I wanted them to be really special. I used some wax paper to make a template and then rolled out my fondant to start making the heads. Thanks to my dear hubby, you get treated to a shot of me in action.

Still a lot of cakes to finish before I call it a week, but I'm done for the night. Here's a parting shot of the finished "smash" cake. Oh, I can't bear to think about this little guy actually getting smashed! Maybe the family will just get it bronzed?
