Our latest Monkey Themed Baby Shower Cakes

It started with this green and brown monkey baby shower cupcake tower:

Sage green brown and cream monkey themed baby shower cupcake tower

The cupcake tower has become so popular with our customers and we have repeated it many times. Some of our customers have wanted a cake instead of a cupcake tower and we have done a larger version of the topper cake with the monkey on the side and sugar baby shoes on top.

A few of our latest creations have been with the monkey on top of the cake:

This party was hosted at The Play Factory in the Desert Ridge Marketplace. Both customers rented our 4 tier white cupcake towers for display.

This cake was ordered by a sister coming into town to celebrate her brother's 40th birthday.

This cake was iced with chocolate buttercream (it smelled sooo yummy!) for the tree log, bordered with a buttercream grass border with lots of bugs including a spider, milliped, moth, butterfly, ladybugs and dragonfly.

Pink or Blue? Another gender reveal cake and its a ....

pink and blue gender reveal cake

...a GIRL! Our customer brought us her results directly from her ultrasound (we're located just down the street from Scottsdale Hospital) and we tinted the batter pink. The cake design was done in pink and blue and topped with a multiloop bow. This was a 8 inch round as they were having some friends and family share in the big reveal.

I created a collage of some of the gender reveal cakes that we've created. The 6 inch cake is a personal size for sharing the news with immediate family (6-8 servings).
