I think I have narrowed it down for my dd cake and have decided on a monkey cake. We are actually having her party at Monkey Joe's so it would be the perfect cake! I think I may want to do a cake that has some small monkeys but no clue how to sculpt them. Any pointer's or suggestions? The simple the better! I have had the week from hell and her party is next Sunday.

Thanks,

Kelley

There is a lady on here who has a really good monkey tutorial on her website. But I don't remember where it is. I probably wrote it down somewhere...so I will try to find it for you. And maybe someone else will remember her website. It's not a small monkey though. The entire cake is the monkey...super cute!

Make an egg shape body, 1/2 that size or so round ball head, I used a small heart hump (the top of the heart) shape for the eyes, and a orange slice shape for the mouth. roll out the arms, legs, and tail. add ears, dot the eyes and your good to go. These monkeys were about the size of a whopper candy.

BTW - Please check and make sure Money Joe's will allow you to bring a cake in from outside. Some places do not allow it.
