Characters or designs are often outlined first, then piped in with stars or zigzags. Outlines can also be used for facial features.

Add that special touch to your cake with your special someone´s name.

The star tip creates the most celebrated, easily accomplished decorations! The serrated edges of the star tip make ridges in the icing as you squeeze it out. Because fill in requires so much piping from the same bag, keep replenishing icing in bag.

Baby Chimp's Ready to Chomp! Mini Cake is rated 4.428571428571429 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this for my great nephew's 1st birthday. He just loved his cake. The minute I put it in front of him he grabbed a handfull of cake, I guess he thought it was a stuffed aniimal. It was very simple to make. I also made a larger version of this same cake with the big bear pan. It takes a while to get all the stars on this cake but the look on my nephews face was well worth the time I spent on it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I used the large bear pan for this cake. Instead of using vanilla wafers for the ears, I used the ears that were cut off from the bear. I attached the ears using toothpicks. I didn't use any fondant. Instead I made the legs and arms from cake (cut to form) and attached them using toothpicks (after cutting the legs off the bear). Then I made the tail out of molding chocolate. It turned out great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this for my son. It turned out super cute and everyone loved it. However, the chocolate buttercream dries too hard and dry. I was expecting my kid to be a huge, chocolately mess once he got ahold of it. He barely put a dent in it. I recommend using canned chocolate frosting, or something else that's a little messier. After all, isn't that the point of a cake that says SMASH ME?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from My cake was similar to this one but not exact. I also used the mini stand-up bear pan to make my monkey and I used the ears of the bear for the monkey ears instead of wafers. This was one of the first cakes I made (for my son's 1st birthday party) and I didn't know much about fondant so I used icing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this as the smash cake for my son's 1st birthday--and it was ADORABLE! Our only problem was getting the ears to stay on. Otherwise, it turned out perfectly. I would absolutely recommend this cake to any other monkey-baby mommies!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made a version of this cake for my daughter's first birthday. it was pretty easy and came out adorable. The only thing i changed was using fondant cutouts for the face, hands and feet. I'm a beginner and this was a fun project!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This was my first time molding fondant. It was easier than I thought. The cake turned out great! I set it on a round circle cake with buttercream grass. Trimed it with banana shaped candies (Runts).
