Needless to say, we have had a busy, busy week here what with Halloween, birthday party planning etc! My Mother in Law flew up from Florida to celebrate with us and I'm telling you, this little boy got SPOILED! Clothes, Pajamas, books and a boat load more toys to add to the ever expanding pile that is threatening to take over our living room. He is in hog heaven I tell ya!
For his birthday I had this crazy idea that I was going to make him a monkey cake. I have never really dabbled in cake making before and was thinking on making him something pretty simple until I started looking on the internet. I came across this AMAZING cake that I fell in love with... It was much more adventurous than I originally intended and was very doubtful that I could achieve it. After speaking with my husband and enlisting a friends help off I went and bought all the ingredients... The fondant and food coloring, banana pudding for the center and I must admit I cheated a little and took advantage of Ms Betty Crocker. SO much easier.
5 hours later, THIS is how it turned out. I swear I almost broke my arm patting myself on the back. It's not perfect, but still, for my first try? Watch out Duff is all I can say.
