Monkey Cake Pan and Cake Kit

Use a specialty cake pan or cake kit to create a fun party treat!

Wilton released the Monkey cake pan #2105-1023 in 2008.  This specialty cake pan comes with complete baking and decorating instructions.  The Monkey cake pictured below is a sample of how the finished cake will look. 

There is also a Monkey cake kit available that is super adorable.  The cake kit comes with a plastic Monkey head, tail, hand holding banana and feet.   This decoration would look terrific on a cupcake cake.  Simply bake your cupcakes, frost with chocolate icing and then arrange on a 9 X 13 cake board in a pattern similar to the one pictured.  Add the plastic decorations and your monkey will come to life!

Monkey Edible Cake Toppers

A simple way to make an awesome cake!

I love edible cake toppers!  I have used them a few times in the past and am always pleased with the results.  If you are not an advanced cake decorator than an edible cake image is a simple way to create a masterpiece that will wow your party guests.

The monkey cake image featured here is from Lucks.    This cake topper fits a 8" round cake, but it can also be used on a sheet cake like you see here.   You can add some palm trees or other decorations on the sides to fill in the white space. 

If you are hosting a Mod Monkey party, there is a large selection of personalized Mod Monkey and Monkey Love cake images available on Ebay.   These monkey cake decorations can be used for round cakes, sheet cakes, cupcakes and even cookies.
