real parties: monkeys and bananas


I flipped for this banana split party created and sent in by Mini Gaga from her son Jacob's 3rd birthday. So many clever DiY touches! The three layer cake matches the party colors in a combo of chocolate, vanilla and red velvet. It's covered in a buttercream frosting with DiY fondant monkeys... and wow does it look delicious. The cupcakes have little monkey faces made following instructions from the frosted cake n cookie . To top the banana splits there was assorted candy, chocolate topping, cherries and sprinkles, along with coconut ice in yellow to match...

This would be a great theme to follow for someone who loves Curious George but doesn't want a commercially feel. I love it! Super cute.
