I'm sure this is obvious, but I'm starting to panic and wondering if anyone can offer some tips on turning the 3D bear into a monkey.
I have one big one and two small ones (for smash cakes) to finish for Saturday, and I'm getting nervous about it.
I've tried searching here and on the web at large, but have had no luck.
Any help you could offer would be very much appreciated!

no instructions...but great inspiration
I used a 3D snowman pan to make a monkey once. I used leftover batter to make some mini muffins and used one to build up the mouth area - attached with a skewer and BC. I used the grass tip to make fur which turned out well. I made a fondant snake as a tail and covered that with bc using the grass tip as well. Also made a fondant banana in the monkey's hand - thought it helped with playfulness and distracts from things that might seem off. HTH!
