I really love opportunities to make 3D cakes. It is fun to visualize it in my mind and then see it "come to life" in cake!
I had a request for a monkey/gorilla cake. Madison really loves watching the "Tori and Dean" show and wanted to have a 3D gorilla cake like one from the birthday party of Tori and Dean's son Liam's first birthday.
I don't mind getting inspiration from other cake artists, in fact there are so many talented people out there that I wish I could be like! But I knew that the cake from the show wasn't near cute enough for Madison.
I found this picture on Celebrity Moms blog
Of course Madison didn't need to have such a large cake, so I had to scale down and of course I set forth with my plans.
CUTE, he has to be CUTE!
This gorilla/monkey is a cake body and a rice krispie head. Covered in chocolate buttercream icing and fondant accents.
Here is a close up of the banana he is holding.
Thanks Madison for such a great plan! I hope you had the best birthday ever!
