My son loves Curious George so I made this Curious George birthday cake for his second birthday. I got ideas from looking at cakes on this website.

I made a square cake and a round one and placed one on top of the other. The cakes were a chocolate. I used Royal Icing and chose colours from the movie which were red, yellow, blue and green. I painted on the palm trees and bananas with food colouring and used zoo animal candles.

I also used the Royal Icing to make the balloons that Curious George in the picture is holding onto. For the cake topper I sculpted a hat with yellow icing and I used licorice around the base of the hat as well as the cake, and the picture is from a DVD cover which I cut and pasted onto a plastic plate.

I also found glitter gel to make zig zag lines on top of the round cake. The entire party had a jungle theme, with bananas and crepe paper for vines and palm trees. Afterwards we gave the kids bubbles which Curious George loved in the movie.

I made this Curious George birthday cake for a friend's son's birthday. They had seen a "Curious George" cake made with a bowl instead of a pan, but I didn't think it looked all that much like Curious George, so (with their permission) I found a good birthday-appropriate picture on the internet.

It's a two layer 8" scratch yellow cake with vanilla buttercream. I used a combination of lemon yellow and sunshine yellow for the background/between layers. I used a dark chocolate frosting darkened with black frosting color until it was black enough for me to do the outlining, and a milk chocolate frosting for George himself.

Once the cake was frosted with yellow and allowed to "crust over" a bit, I traced the outline of the picture onto the top of the cake with a toothpick, then went over that with the black frosting. I piped in all the areas, then smoothed them with a damp paint brush. I tried to stick with the color scheme from the book covers (yellow, blue, and red) for edge decorations and balloons.

I made this Curious George Birthday Cake for my partner's nephew for his birthday present. He loves monkeys and seeing as George is his fav I thought it was the best one to do.

I made it using a Madeira sponge which took 10 eggs, only just had a bowl big enough. I used an 11inch flower shaped tin and then placed on top a dinner plate and cut round it to get a huge round cake. I buttercreamed and jammed the inside and then crumb covered the outside with more butter cream.

The icing I used was ready coloured icing. The actual Curious George was made by printing off a picture and then cutting that out so I had the template to place on top of chocolate flavoured icing and then gradually cut off parts from the picture to use same way on different coloured icings.

Finally I piped on a yellow round the top and red round the bottom just to hide any mistakes.
It went down a storm.

My sister made this Curious George Birthday Cake for our son's 1st birthday party. She made the cake with 2 flavors, 1 side was chocolate cake with vanilla Bavarian and fresh strawberries. The other side was white cake with vanilla Bavarian and fresh bananas. That side went really good with the monkey theme.

The cake is frosted with buttercream frosting and the Curious George's face was done free hand, also by buttercream. The design of the cake was inspired by the invitations we sent out for the party.

This cake was beautiful and delicious!

My nephew was born on St. Patty's day and he loves Curious George. For his birthday he wanted a monkey cake.

The cakes were French vanilla covered in butter cream and then coated in marshmallow fondant. Everything on this Curious George birthday cake was edible except Curious George. I made the bananas with my hand as well as the palm trees.
