Monkey Cake


Recommended Posts

has anyone ever made this cake? Even if the answer is no, please weigh in on my questions. Do you think it would look ok without the banana peal? and do you think it would be ok if I didn't make the frosting peanut butter? any other tips for making it cute? i am not a crafty person!

Yes - that is a very cute cake!! I think it would look fine without the peel. I think the frosting would be fine as long as you were somehow able to color it brown.

 

I love making cakes! I'm not professional or anything, but I love trying to make new things. I always change out the frosting to a cream cheese one and I just color it.

 

Have fun! And, take pictures.

Are you planning a monkey party? I wanted to throw a monkey party for my dc but we never did. Anyways, that cake is soooo cute. If you need anymore ideas on "monkey" theme parties - I know of one by Martha Stewart. There's a video on how to make monkey paper cups. sooooo cute. I love parties.

THANK YOU!!!!! I needed a monkey cake for my 2yo monkey's b-day this summer. That looks pretty simple.

*I* won't do the peel, the peanut butter, or the choc. crispies. I'll probably mix a little choc. frosting with the white, to get it the tanish color. (My DC LOVE p.b., so I "may" do the p.b.). BUT- we'll be having two cakes at once, for two b-day kids- so everyone will get a choice on whether to try the p.b. or not- IF I use it.

If you get an icing bag, and use a wilton star tip with the chocolate frosting, the monkey will look furry without the krispies. I think the krispies won't stay crispy, LOL.

What a cute--and easy--cake! You can do this with no problem and the results are just too darned cute. I'd skip the peanut butter, too, and use either a little bit of cocoa powder or some tan food coloring to make the white icing the right color. The banana peel is definitely optional.

I made the Martha Stewart monkey cake for my dd's birthday one year, I have a pic of it:

Here are the directions:

I don't know that I would do the banana cake again, I'd probably just do a yellow cake. But the chocolate buttercream frosting was so good the moms were licking their kids' plates. SERIOUSLY YUM.
