I am new to cupcakes but have been doing cakes for a while. I need to make monkeys on top of cupcakes and wondered how big they should be? I have one made and it's 1 1/2 inches tall. Is that too small?

For a cake, that would be a nice size. For a cupcake, that is way too big. A cupcake is usually just 2" tall. Think of a cupcake as a serving size, just differently proportioned.

I would think 1/2" would work. But then, what is your purpose? to "top" the cupcake, overpower it, or just embelish?

I would put your test monkey on a cupcake and see how you like the looks of it.
