Cool Homemade Sock Monkey Cake Design

This Sock Monkey Cake Design was a first on many levels! 1st birthday cake, first time to work with fondant, first Topsy-Turvy cake, first baby – okay, maybe I was crazy from oxytocin poisoning from all that breast feeding!

The cake was a banana cake (Martha Stewart website for recipe)with chocolate butter cream icing (traditional recipe) and marshmallow homemade fondant (youtube for recipes)- fondant was super easy to make and tasted good – unlike that yucky greasy stuff from the store (and much cheaper too). My son loved Sock Monkeys, so I tried to have them holding up the topsy-turvy cake hence the expressions on their faces.

I made the monkeys in 3 days advance and stored them in the fridge. Remember: wooden dowels are your friends as are bamboo skewers, which the monkeys were molded around and “stuck” in to the cake with.

  1. Your cake is so cute, I’d almost have difficult time cutting into it. I’d even enjoy one for my own birthday!! Thanks for sharing your darling cake.
