Monkeyin' Around At Old Coco Cake HQ





Wheeee!! What fun... a beautiful color theme of pink, orange and brown made up this adorable baby shower cake and matching cupcakes-- with baby girl monkeys!! Kawaii!! Janice and Brent will be adopting a beautiful little girl from Vietnam, and have named her Jocelyn. The cake was chocolate with chocolate ganache filling and chocolate buttercream, covered in fondant; the cupcakes are Lemon Love, scrumptious lemon cake made with real lemon juice and lemon zest, and lemon creamcheese frosting. Yum!

I must have drawn about 30 monkey faces. They just kept looking like bears... until I realized--- I had to put the EARS down on the side of the head! Like humans! Not like teddy bears! Eeks... I was so happy with how it all turned out.

Congratulations on the new and wonderful excitement in your lives, Janice and Brent! Yay Baby Jocelyn!

These are adorable. Its funny how much of a difference the placement of 2 little ears can make! I believe I saw cupcake sleeves (holders? I am not sure what they are called) with little bananas on them at party city, or another large party supply store. Thought I would share the tip.
