For Fritter's birthday I had to end up making her monkey cake, since all of the cake people I knew were already busy. It kinda freaked me out at first, but after lots of research and thinking, I came up with her cake! It was really simple & fun to do!
First off, I store bought everything...You could bake a homemade cake, but for time & to keep my sanity, I just bought Betty Crocker Super Moist Butter Recipe Yellow cake.
After the cakes have cooled, I flipped it over & put it face up on my board. I then took the other cake & with the top of my sugar bowl (you could use a normal bowl, or just guesstimate!) I cut out to half circles to form the ears.
